Seminar on civil-military relations today Sustainable Development Policy Institute Pakistan (SDPI)
The Sustainable Development Policy Institute Pakistan (SDPI) is holding a seminar titled ‘Civil-Military Relations and the Role of Media in Pakistan’ today (Monday).
The main speakers of the seminar include National Security Affairs Editor Ejaz Haider, journalist and analyst Syed Talat Hussain, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA Asad Umar, and SDPI Executive Director Abid Q Suleri. The debate on the civil-military relations has been a significant one in Pakistan. While Pakistan experienced the first ever democratic transition of government during the general elections 2013, the balance between the civil and military power continues to raise important questions. This is particularly important due to Pakistan’s sensitive security situation. In this context, the SDPI has organised a seminar on the said subject in order to take a deeper look into the extent of balance between the civil-military relations and the role of the media in shaping public opinion in the country.
