Thesis Title: Civil-military relations in Pakistan and the effects on the strategic partnership with China.
The civil-military interplay in Pakistan is one of the most interesting aspects to understand the political parabola of the "Land of the Pure", since the peculiar relations between the military, particularly the army, and the democratically elected leaders have de facto shaped the country's political history and foreign policy. This PhD dissertation examines the links which occur between Pakistan developments in domestic politics and the country's foreign policy, particularly looking at economic and military ties between Islamabad and Beijing.
