"Pakistan's Military Elite"

Fri, October 27, 2017 | BAT 5.108

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Abstract: This paper presents new data on the career paths and post-retirement trajectories of Pakistan Army corps commanders - the key elite who dominate the Army and its military and political decision-making. We use these data, qualitative evidence, and cross-national comparisons to explore how the Pakistan Army manages the delicate balancing act between deep political involvement and ongoing military operations while maintaining high levels of organizational cohesion.
