March 16, 2007, 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
This conference will focus on the paradoxical role Pakistan plays in the struggle against global Islamist terrorism. The country is both part of the solution and part of the problem. Regional experts will assess the challenges Pakistan faces in its struggle for stability and democracy. They will also assess how U.S policy could help promote these objectives while eliminating terrorism.
