Beset by devastating floods, increased terror attacks, and political instability, Pakistan's precarious state is a matter of global concern. "Crisis Guide: Pakistan," the Council on Foreign Relations' (CFR) new interactive multimedia feature, examines the roots of the country's challenges.
The array of Pakistan's challenges include: an increasing number of terrorist groups; a growing nuclear arsenal that could become vulnerable to these groups; a long-standing rivalry with India and troubled border with conflict-ridden Afghanistan; and the ongoing power struggle between a strong military and a weak civilian government. The guide draws on expert analysis to demonstrate what these problems mean for the region and the world, and to explore potential directions for the country.
