A NATIONAL SECURITY POLICY FOR PAKISTAN
Keywords:Security Policy, Securitization, Strategic Community, Think-Tanks
Since its inception, Pakistan has faced multiple internal and external security challenges, but two internal issues namely political and economic instability have cast heavy shadows on its external policy. In the absence of political continuity, dedicated leadership and long-term policy formulation, the country has suffered the most. In the changing geostrategic environment and security milieu, Pakistan needs a comprehensive national security policy on sound footings and futuristic vision with proactive zeal to pursue its desired national security interests/objectives. This needs revamping existing national security structure and decision-making, involvement of academia, think-tanks and strategic community, and sensitization of media.
