【Title】Still Between Mosque and Military? Pakistan’s Developing Dynamics
Nearly two decades ago Ambassador Hussain Haqqani argued that Pakistan’s was “Between Mosque and Military” and a confluence of the two. This talk will assess the validity of that argument in 2017 and how the dynamics have changed in the interim, especially in view of two parliaments finishing their full terms for the first time in Pakistan’s history. It will also comment on the changing Geo political scenario of the region and how it affects the internal politics of Pakistan.
