Pakistan Student Exchange Roundtable Discussion

On August 19, the Atlantic Council’s South Asia Center hosted a roundtable discussion with a group of Pakistani high school students visiting Washington, DC as part of the 2010 EDLINKS Pakistan-US Student Exchange. Approximately twenty young people met with South Asia Center Director Shuja Nawaz for an informal conversation about a variety of topics relating to the work of the Center. The students, with the support of their chaperones and supervisors from KZO Education, asked questions about the status of US-Pakistan relations, the Kerry-Lugar bill, recent flood relief efforts, and the differing perceptions of Pakistan among the American public.
