Bringing More Stability to a Misunderstood Relationship
Last year, Pathways to Change – Pakistan Policy Symposium, a two-day event jointly organized by the Wilson Center and INDUS, convened expert scholars, academics, and practitioners from the United States and Pakistan to explore Pakistan’s recent achievements in economic, political, and foreign affairs as well as its opportunities to address current and future challenges. Speakers and panelists focused on identifying practical, innovative, and above all actionable policy solutions. The following series of policy briefs, which draw on discussions from the symposium, will be of interest to the academic and scholarly communities; diaspora audiences; business and policy circles; and any general audiences interested in Pakistan, U.S.- Pakistan relations, or international relations on the whole.
Michael Kugelman, the Wilson Center’s senior associate, Shezad Habib, the INDUS special adviser, and Nasir Naveed, the INDUS director of policy, offer a U.S. perspective on the bilateral relationship. They lay out a series of steps—from maintaining realistic expectations to making lowrisk moves that enable the two sides to increase much-needed goodwill—that can keep the relationship cordial as it navigates the Afghanistan challenge.
