Resistance and Its Limits

Protesting Urban Violence in Lyari, Karachi

I would like to thank the Lahore University of Management Sciences for supporting my research through the Faculty Initiative Fund. I would also like to thank Sameer Mandhro and Ayla Shahid for their valuable assistance with the research and writing. I am grateful to Amen Jaffer and Anant Maringanti for providing valuable comments and suggestions. Finally, I would like to thank all my friends in Lyari for sharing their experiences and insights with me. The responsibility for the fi nal composition of the article and the ideas presented within it, however, rest with me.
