Pakistan and the U.S.: At a Strategic Crossroads

At this Sept. 1 event, New America's National Security Studies Program Director Peter Bergen and Michael J. Mazarr of the National War College unveiled the findings of the NAF/NWC Pakistan Study Group. The report, "Pakistan and the United States: At a Strategic Crossroads," can be downloaded here. The Study Group, comprised of American and Pakistani experts, came together to devise practical ways to advance the U.S.-Pakistan relationship at a time when relations between the two countries are at possibly their most strained. As the report explains, "a host of interlocking challenges -- grounded in a deteriorating economy -- call into question Pakistan's ability to 'muddle through' as it has in the past, and the next two or three years pose a crucial test for the country's efforts to arrest continuing socioeconomic decline." At the event, Bergen, Mazarr and other experts outlined the report's "collaborative agenda" to help Pakistan "take its place as a major power in a modernizing South Asia" -- and discussed the many challenges that effort must address.
