The Impact of Pakistan’s Military on Foreign Policy: A Presentation by Dr. Bilal Munshi

Thursday, 6th February 2014 | 7:00 pm

The Pakistani Military serves as the primary institutional gatekeeper of state security, and consequently controls the policy process from conceptualization to implementation. Foreign policy is conceptualized and implemented through a securitized perceptual lens. This dynamic has affected Pakistan’s foreign/security policies in particular ways.

Join us at T2F for a presentation by Dr. Bilal Munshi as he highlights these dynamics and the consequent manner in which they affect Pakistan’s foreign policy output.

The presentation will focus on providing a detailed, critical analysis of the nature and scope of the Pakistani military’s dominance over the policy process as well as how it conceptualizes and implements prescriptive policy approaches. This institutional dominance manifests itself in ways which impact issues of public as well as foreign policy. The ensuing impact of these prescriptive approaches on Pakistan’s holistic security environment will also be examined.
