Theses undertook:

  •  The Politics of Narcotic Drugs in South Asia: 1895-1996’, PhD thesis, School of Politics, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia, 1998.
  • The thesis explains why governments is India, Pakistan and Bangladesh barely changed the fallouts of the British colonial drug laws until the mid-1980s, and examines the geo-political and economic causes for the resurgence of international drug trafficking in these countries in recent decades.
  • ‘Dr. Haq’s subject is indeed important: Narcotic Drugs in South Asia. He knows probably as much on this topic as anyone in the world, as his learned readers appreciatively noted and the publishers quickly realized. I should emphasize that for a PhD thesis to find distinguished publishers so quickly and readily is unusual.’ – Professor Robin Jeffrey, Head, Department of Politics, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.
  • ‘In my view Professor Emdad-ul Haq’s work makes a substantial contribution to the knowledge of the subject with which it deals. The author has provided both a historical background to an understanding of political and legal problems of illicit drug production, trade and consumption in contemporary South Asia, the impact of drug trafficking upon public order and political process. The author’s use of relevant literature is comprehensive’. – professor Frank F. Conlon, Department of History and International Studies, Director, South Asia Center, University of washing ton, Seattle, USA.
  • ‘Professor Haq has undertaken to survey a very broad field of enquiry: the origins and present state of government policies concerning narcotic drugs in South Asia. He has entirely appropriately approached the question of contemporary developments by placing them emphatically in a historical context. Given the long historical baseline of this study and geographical spread it encompasses, the project would be impossible if it did not make clear linkages to many context of knowledge. Many disciplines (political economy, public policy, agronomy, criminology, etc. etc.) have a bearing on this topic and those connections are well made’. – Professor Peter B. Mayer, Head, Politics Department, The University of Adelaide, Australia.
  • ‘No subject in the modern world has generated so much of documents as the narcotics. The complexity of the subject is heightened by the fact that it was always trans-national and consequently its sources were also divergent. Obviously, using even a part of these documents is a daunting job for any researcher. However, Professor Haq could grapple with the problem amazingly well’. – Professor (retd.) Sirajul Islam, Department of History, Dhaka University, Bangladesh.
