Government expenditure and budget deficit have inverse relationship while unemployment has a direct relationship with poverty in Pakistan. Furthermore in this model we seek the impact of inflation rate and exchange rate which help us show negative relationship with poverty while inflation has also a direct relationship with it. In this thesis all of the five variables have been used with three out of five have negative and the other two have a positive relationship with poverty.

Humanitarianism is war’s philosophy to treat the enemy as a human after becoming dysfunction to fight further. So far, humanitarian law is clear- at least in codes- regarding international and traditional wars. After 9/11 the world experienced a total new war where, at least one party is nonstate actor. How to deal the injured, captured and dead combatants and non-combatants during the war became unclear and debatable. The war was fought in the parts of Pakistan including Swat that witnessed a huge displacement and destruction. People suffered hugely at the hands of the combating parties. It made it debatable to study whether there is a set of humanitarian codes, owned and practiced by military and militants. An intellectual work therefore, is mandatory to know the roots, sources and codes of humanitarian principles of the war on terror and its relevance with the fighting in Swat.
