I am interested in informal institutions, democratization, nonviolence, and social movements. Specifically, I am interested in the question: How could subjugated knowledges of Islamic nonviolent social movements contribute to sociological perspectives of social change in Muslim societies ? Additionally, I take Afghanistan as a case study and focus on how informal institutions affect state institutions in conflict resolution.
