This Open Society Foundations event features a conversation with three Pakistani experts from academia, the legal profession, and journalism.
The discussion addresses the current situation in Pakistan, including issues such as national security, and poor economic and governance conditions. Participants look at how changes occurring in the sociopolitical arena, the judiciary, and media might (or might not) be able to address some of the grave challenges the society faces.
