Pakistan: Protests and Policy

Since the founding of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in 1947, the state has been dominated by its army. Locked in a rivalry with India, the army has initiated three wars over the disputed territory of Kashmir. Today nuclear-armed, the Pakistani army continues to prosecute dangerous policies though violent non-state actors. Meanwhile, Pakistan is mired in a domestic political crisis, with protestors calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Threats of violence are raising the chances of yet another military intervention to control the affairs of the state.

Understanding al Qaeda and its Affiliates: A Global Threat or JV Squad?

A Conversation with Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, Bruce Hoffman, Thomas Joscelyn and Jonathan Schanzer

Speaking about organizations claiming allegiance to al Qaeda, President Barack Obama stated that "if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant." The president’s remarks have sparked yet another debate about whether al Qaeda is weakened, whether it is resurgent, or whether it was ever weakened in the first place.  Has the Arab Spring spawned a surge in jihadism? Are these organizations taking advantage of the new environment in the region, or is the expansion of jihadist groups largely independent of the revolutions? How well is Washington’s current approach to al Qaeda working? If the group is growing despite U.S. efforts, how do we put our policies on the right track?
