"Who is In-Charge in Pakistan: The Military's Great Come Back"

Mon, November 23, 2009 | House of Tutors, 2400 Pearl Street

4:00 PM

The Alhambra-U.S. Chamber of Commerce is hosting its first monthly speaker of its Alhambra Speaker Series. Dr. Kamran Ali of the University of Texas Department of Anthropology will be speaking. The lecture will look at the Military's role in recent Pakistani history and argue that despite its retreat from formal power power it has managed to partially rehabilitate its image within Pakistan. What are its future designs and how it keeps the democratic set up in check while not allowing any scrutiny of its own role in Pakistani politics remains an intriguing and still unfolding story.
