Abstract"The 2011 political reforms included numerous and extensive amendments to the Frontier Crimes Regulation. The legal concepts and overarching structure of the regulation, however, remained essentially untouched. While most critics and many FATA citizens argue that additional political reforms are needed, the 2011 amendments to the FCR did introduce new concepts, strengthened pre-existing substantive and procedural law, and made some gains in terms of the political and human rights of FATA citizens. The main purpose of the research was to understand gaps in the current FCR Reforms and present community determined changes to the Reforms."

Tribal Legal System, Social Order and Conflict Resolution: A Case of Provincially Administered Tribal Areas of PakistanMuhammad Shafiq; Ashfaq Ahmad Khan; Liaqat Ali Waseem; Noor Bakhsh (Karabuk University, 2017-12-01)This paper aims to explore the importance of kinship system in tribal areas (Fazla Kach) of province Punjab, Pakistan. An exploratory research was conducted by using the qualitative research tools for data collection including key informant interviewing and participant observation as the major tools for data collection. It was revealed through data analysis that kinship system plays a central role in tribal life. Kinship system merely serves as the code of tribal life of Buzdar tribe of Fazla Kach, Punjab Pakistan. Extended family system is lead and identified by the grandfather’s name who possesses the ultimate decision-making power. Kinship system plays a pivotal role to maintain social order through repressive tribal laws which are executed through Meal-Maraka (indigenous conflict resolution body). Each minimal lineage is represented by Sofaid Rish (white bearded). Furthermore, data revealed that segmentary lineage kinship is decisive in formal electoral process. Ritual and ceremonies, property inheritance, communal land holding and sheep flock herding and conflict resolution are conducted via patriarchal kinship system. Females are very active in daily chores of life yet are invisible in socio-political and economic system of the tribe.
Understanding FATA: Attitudes towards Governance, Religion and Society in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Volume II)Shinwari, Naveed Ahmad (2008)The Community Appraisal & Motivation Programme (CAMP) has been conducting opinion polls of the people of FATA since 2007.

The poll of 2,000 adults was conducted in seven tribal agencies and three Frontier Regions of the FATA. The poll used proportionate stratified sampling, and included 29.1 % women.
