Shuja Nawaz on Pakistan’s Security and the Civil-Military Nexus

Highlight - Nawaz

Shuja Nawaz, Director of the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center, penned a chapter on Pakistan in the new book The Afghanistan-Pakistan Theater: Militant Islam, Security & Stability, published by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.

While Pakistan deals with security threats emanating from neighboring Afghanistan and India, in his chapter entitled “Pakistan’s Security and the Civil-Military Nexus,” Nawaz writes about the dangerous conflict Pakistan faces from within: an internal war against radical Islamists.

The book also features a chapter by Atlantic Council Strategic Advisors Group member Sebastian Gorka titled “The Enemy: Understanding and Defeating Jihadist Ideology.”
