Keywords: FATA, FATA merger, FCR, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa


Federally Administered Tribal Areas unification with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is an important move by Pakistan 's govt to handle the matter of law and order and the normalization of the area. This qualitative study is an effort to examine the role of systemic and cultural aspects that caused disruption to the FATA region and the consequences of fusion in solving these problems. Research findings indicate that not only do a large number of FATA citizens support the move, but also look forward to providing the area with great outcomes. This proposed merger would not only bring about governmental and infrastructural growth in FATA, but the province will also be involved in new enterprises, better connectivity, greater innovation and positive social improvements. In addition , it is important that govt include local citizens in this program, because it would be very challenging for the state to gain the desired outcomes without understanding the local conditions.
