Come find out on April 3rd, 4:30 PM at Shanklin 107 from Dr. Hassan Abbas. Dr. Abbas is a professor at Columbia University, a Harvard Fellow and has worked under the administrations of both Pervez Musharraf and Benazir Bhutto.

Dr. Abbas will talk about Pakistan in the context of regional developments as geopolitics play a critical role in South Asia. He will also reflect on Pakistan in a comparative context – for students to understand how regional conflicts and tensions have shaped internal development in Pakistan.
