The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is the axis on which South Asia turns. From domestic political strife to its role as a player (or roadblock) in the war on terror, Pakistan’s precarious position leaves the international community holding its collective breath.
This week, we’re taking a closer look at the country, starting out with a Special Report from CSS researcher Matthew Hulbert, who calls for a rethink of Pakistan’s anti-terror strategy, and analyst Philip McCrum, who examines Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari’s effectiveness.
Also on tap for this week:
- In our Digital Library, check out India, Pakistan and Bangladesh: ‘Trilateralism’ in South Asia? from Institute of South Asian Studies (ISAS) in Singapore.
- The S Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) discusses the Talibanisation of Pakistan in our Policy Briefs section.
- In Primary Resources, you’ll find US President Barack Obama’s Speech on Afghanistan and Pakistan.
And as always, we’ll be updating the site throughout the week.
