What's Next for Pakistan, Post-Election?
For many months, Pakistan has been embroiled in multiple major crises. These include severe economic stress, a resurgence in terrorism, growing border tensions, and serious political instability. The country is going through one of its most difficult periods in years, raising the stakes for its February 8 election—one that many observers have criticized for lacking a level playing field—and creating immense challenges for Pakistan’s next government.
This online event brought together a panel of current and former Wilson Center fellows to discuss the election outcome and what it might mean for Pakistan’s politics, society, economy, security, and foreign affairs, including relations with the United States.
