In this Issue

  • SPOTLIGHT on Pakistan: There is perhaps no other country whose fortunes will have as much bearing on global security in the near to medium term as Pakistan. If Pakistan is unable to address its multiple challenges, weaknesses and failures, it will likely descend into pervasive conflict with implications far beyond its borders. Therefore, U.S. efforts to forge a broad strategic partnership with Pakistan that addresses, along with the terrorist threat, the country’s economic and social challenges ought to be viewed as an intervention aimed at conflict prevention.
