Building democracy and fighting extremism in Pakistan: a role for the EU

1 April 2008


The February elections in Pakistan have radically transformed the country's political landscape, ushering in a new era of democratic government after almost nine years of military rule. This Policy Brief by Shada Islam argues that while bringing Pakistan back from the brink will be difficult, the EU and Member State governments must engage rapidly with the country's new leaders and hammer out a fresh, long-term strategy for a stronger, more pro-active and multi-faceted role in Pakistan.
