Source: FES

Director, Center for Security, Strategy and Policy Research (CSSPR), Prof. Dr. Rabia Akhtar, co-authored with Vice Chancellor, Beaconhouse National University, Dr. Moeed Yusuf,  a report titled “Pakistan’s Geoeconomic Pivot: Strategies, Opportunities, and Challenges.” Published by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), the report looks at how the concept of geoeconomics has evolved in the West and as to how Pakistan wants to operationalize it as a plank of its National Security Policy (NSP) and development strategy. Further, it looks at how the idea of connectivity is critical to creating interdependencies and actualizing Pakistan’s geographical potential. The report also delves into the significance of development partnerships as one of the key approaches to reducing dependence on foreign loans. The report ends with a list of recommendations for policymakers to use geoeconomics and its two Pakistan-specific constituents for not only the country’s growth and security but also regional connectivity and integration.
