    Abstract

    In a recent initiative targeting Muslim extremism in Britain, Communities Secretary
    Hazel Blears referred to "ungoverned spaces", actual and virtual social spaces that
    facilitate the radicalisation of Pakistani Muslim youth in Britain. By extension, in the
    West in political and popular constructions Pakistan is also made intelligible as an
    ungovernable space, with the rise in conflicts and violence in Pakistan and the
    perceived lawlessness of its tribal areas.
