Who We Are: Rahimullah Yusufzai

Based in Peshawar, Pakistan, Rahimullah Yusufzai is one of the world’s leading authorities on the politics of the Pakistan-Afghanistan frontier. As the world’s attention has increasingly shifted upon the region, amid all the hyperbole, Yusufzai’s voice has once again emerged as an indispensable corrective to the ignorance and propaganda that confuses debate.

His reputation for fairness and accuracy is such that voices on all sides of the political spectrum defer to his authority. Yusufzai is the the Executive Editor of The News International at the Peshawar Bureau. For all serious journalists and scholars seeking informed opinion on developments in the Afghanistan-Pakistan theatre, Yusufzai’s office is usually the first stop.
