A Conversation with Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani
On his first visit to the United States as Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, please join Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani for a discussion focusing on Pakistan’s future stability, democracy, and prosperity.
This meeting is cosponsored with the Middle East Institute.
Sartaj Aziz, advisor to the Pakistani prime minister on national security and foreign affairs, joins Mary McInnis Boies, counsel at Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP, to discuss U.S.-Pakistan relations.
Following the Pakistani Taliban's December 2014 attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, CFR Senior Fellow Daniel Markey and Adjunct Senior Fellow Farah Pandith discussed the attack itself, the Taliban, the Pakistani political scene, the attack's likely implications, and how this might relate to U.S. policy.
Given the enormous threats facing [Pakistan]—from insurgency to environmental degradation to demographics—achieving performance-based legitimacy sufficient to challenge the military’s political dominance will likely remain a tall order for years, perhaps decades, to come, says CFR’s Daniel Markey.
