Summary: This paper explores the linkages between the drugs economy, borderlands and “post-conflict” state-building in Afghanistan through an analysis of Sheghnan, a remote district on the Afghanistan-Tajikistan border in the north-east. The drug economy is presented as an important part of the story of borderland transformation in Sheghnan, i.e. because of the drug trade borders are no longer marginalized but have become a resource to be exploited by the centre (Abstract).
