- Jihad as Grand Strategy: Islamist Militancy, National Security, & the Pakistani State, with S. Paul Kapur
Jihad as Grand Strategy: Islamist Militancy, National Security, & the Pakistani State, with S. Paul Kapur
Islamist militants based in Pakistan play a major role in terrorism around the world. The Pakistan-militant connection is not a new phenomenon; the use of militancy has long been a central component of Pakistani grand strategy. Although this strategy yielded important benefits, it now undermines Pakistani interests, and Pakistan must abandon it to avoid catastrophe. This will require not simply a change of policy, but a thoroughgoing reconceptualization of the Pakistani state.
S. Paul Kapur is a professor in the Department of National Security Affairs at the US Naval Postgraduate School. He is also an Affiliate at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, and a Visiting Fellow at the Observer Research Foundation, New Delhi, India.
