Sample text

By virtue of a theory of necessity set forth by Pakistani jurists in the 1950s, the Rangers also benefited from special arrangements regarding the occupation of public property and fishing rights. These special arrangements enabled them to take control of legal markets for which they themselves first supplied “protection” until the civil government of Sindh stepped in to take its cut on the racket. The “violent entrepreneurship” in which the Rangers gradually became involved is thus not the result of mere “excesses” on the part of these paramilitary troops perpetrated in the context of their home security mission.

The Pakistan Fisherfolk Forum was founded in 1998 by representatives of Pakistani fishermen backed by NGO activists. This organization set itself the aim of informing, uniting, and mobilizing the country’s 15 million fishermen to work toward the “sustainable management of this community’s resources. pk. 41. Hasan Mansoor, “Rangers Control of Fishing Grounds Sparks Controversy in Coastal Sindh,” The Friday Times, Lahore (November 5–11, 2004). 42. The PPP had already sought to cancel the Rangers’ fishing rights in 1996, under Abdullah Shah’s provincial government, but the chief minister was ousted before managing to implement this plan.

7. Vadim Volkov, “Les entreprises de violence dans la Russie postcommuniste,” Politix 13(49) (2002): 69. 8. This notion originally referred to the financing of organizations specialized in the use of violence in the context of Sicily, cf. Anton Blok. The Mafia of a Sicilian Village. A Study of Violent Peasant Entrepreneurs (Oxford: Blackwell, 1974); Diego Gambetta. The Sicilian Mafia. The Business of Private Protection (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1993). The semantic field of the notion is worth extending to include the business activities of state security officers, as Volkov has recently suggested in Violent Entrepreneurs, 27.
