The Community Appraisal & Motivation Programme (CAMP) has been conducting opinion polls of the people of FATA since 2007. The goal of the reports is to reveal the thinking and the opinions of the people so that policy makers and other influential actors will have useful, actionable information. The 2010 edition of ‘Understanding FATA’ is a comprehensive assessment of perceptions that the people of FATA have in several key policy areas including governance, society, religion and politics. The first part of the book places the opinions in the context of the transition of the administrative structure from the British Colonial system to the Pakistan Constitutional system. The second part continues the theme of the Pakhtun in the cross currents of history being made with the focus on the international conflict. The opinions of the people concerning conflict and terrorism, internal security, personal security, the source of suicide bombers, the lack of development as a cause of conflict, the importance of military operations, drones and their impressions on international training for the Frontier Corps are covered. Militancy and religion is an important chapter as is the chapter on Afghan refugees.
