On May 11, CSSPR, along with SETA Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research, and Hasan Kalyoncu University, will host a conference on ‘Transnationalism Vs Statism : Generating and Consuming Security’. This scholarly exchange of views between Pakistani and Turkish scholars will enable them to deconstruct not only a plethora of challenges facing states but also how the force of globalization, with its threats and opportunities, is affecting states’ behaviors and approaches towards security. A 10-member delegation, comprising top-notch Turkish academics, will share Turkey’s perspectives in this conference. Meet them here.

On May 12 and 13, CSSPR and the Bahcesehir University (BAU) will hold dialogues  on ‘Regional Security Architecture’ and ‘Global Security Landscape’, respectively. These two academic endeavors will look at the evolving contours of regional and global security and their  ramifications on the prospect of regional connectivity, economic integration, and great power rivalries.   The Pakistani delegation that will partake in these conferences comprises an experienced and illustrious group of experts and scholars, who have dealt with, taught, and analyzed, matters relating to regional and global security. Meet our Pakistani delegates here.







In what is described as the first Turkey-Pakistan security dialogue, Professor Rabia Akhtar from the University of Lahore said the participants discussed how the regional security architecture shaped the foreign policies of the two countries.

A group of scholars and practitioners from Turkey and Pakistan deliberated on regional security issues Tuesday in the Turkish metropolis of Istanbul

"This is the first such opportunity to listen firsthand from scholars of the two countries, to share our views candidly, which was intellectually a very, very engaging exercise," said Akhtar, who is director of the Center for Security, Strategy and Policy Research at the university.


Pakistani journalist Ejaz Haider said it is important for Turkey and Pakistan to have strategic dialogue "because there are a number of issues which are common to Pakistan and Turkey."

"For instance, take the example of Syria, and you can have a comparison with what Pakistan has gone through in Afghanistan," he said, adding Turkey and Pakistan's relationships with the US was another issue.

"It is important to listen to Turkish scholars and share our findings as how we look at the regional security issues as far as Pakistan is concerned," he added.

The dialogue between Turkish and Pakistani scholars and practitioners will continue with different institutions in Istanbul until Friday, said Akhtar. Turkey is a 'second generation middle-power country'  H?z?r Tar?k O?uzlu a political science teacher at Istanbul Aydin University, said Turkey has pursued a "much more dimensional foreign policy" since early 2000.

By strengthening its relations with Russia, he said, Turkey enjoyed "strategic autonomy," but Turkey never said "goodbye to West. It is a member of NATO, is trying to become part of the

EU and has more than half of its trade with this European bloc."

He described Turkey as a "second generation middle-power country unlike traditional middle powers." "Now, in the Western world-led international liberal order, sensitivities of non-Western countries are being taken into consideration more frequently," he said.

Zafar Nawaz Jaspal, professor of politics and international relations at Quaid-e-Azam University in Pakistan, said the South Asian region "did not enjoy the end of the Cold War…We remained in that tension."

He said there were four different eras of containment, including the US' "Pivot Asia" policy to contain China; the Quad, which Beijing calls the Asian version of NATO; the containment of Russia, which hit back in 2008, 2014 and now in 2022; and the containment of Qatar in 2017.

"India tried to contain and isolate Pakistan, but it failed," he said, adding the region is witnessing an "arms race."

Besides the strategic competition between Pakistan and India, he said there are positive trends happening through regional connectivity initiatives, including the Economic Cooperation Organization, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, China's Belt and Road Initiative, and its flagship program the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. On whether Turkey and Pakistan can cooperate in nuclear tech, the Pakistani academic said that Ankara cannot do so "because it is part of the Non-Proliferation Treaty and it can benefit from the Nuclear Suppliers Group."

He lauded Turkey for its know-how of the "handling of nuclear weapons," calling it "important."

"Turkey was part of solving the Cuban missile crisis issue in the 1960s," he recalled.

He said Turkey was facing sub-conventional challenges "not military, neither nuclear."

'PAKISTAN CAN BENEFIT FROM TURKISH ECONOMIC MODEL'

Syed Hussain Shaheed Suhrawardy, an international relations professor from Peshawar, reflected on India's "territorial expansionism" and resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

He said the South Asia Association for Regional Cooperation was "hostage to India,"

which has resulted in low trade among the South Asian nations.

On Turkey-Pakistan relations, he lauded the Turkish economic model as "wonderful," adding "Pakistan can benefit from it."

"The two countries can trade in their own currencies," he suggested.

Calling for an end to double standards, he said: "whatever happens in Afghanistan never stays

in Afghanistan…It always has a spillover effect."

Ejaz Haider, a Pakistani commentator and journalist, said Pakistan "needed political stability and economic progress," which will allow it to deal with hard as well as non-traditional security issues.


Professor Ahmet Kasim Han from Aydin University pointed out the importance of "logistics" [b][b]to boost Turkey-Pakistan relations.  Farhan Siddiqui, a Pakistani academic from Quaid-e-Azam University, noted trade, refugee issues, ethnic conflicts, social and national cohesion and national security as common issues between the two countries besides "democracy and democratization and making bridges with the rest of the world."
