Abstract:

An examination of the Security imperatives that Pakistan will face in a post Kashmir resolved regional scenario. With the Pakistan-India subcontinent becoming a nuclear zone there is a degree of increased military stability, enforced through an understanding of the fatal consequences of a nuclear exchange. This enhances the likelihood of a resolution on Kashmir. There is a need to understand the changes that this will bring about in a society that has held the conflict over Kashmir as the catalyst to its Security Policy for the last half century. Given the peculiar regional situation that Pakistan will find itself in the future there is a need to develop an outline of its threats and consequent national security policies. Faced with many internal threats, Pakistans Security Forces must look to a new definition of aims. Re-structuring and training for demanding national development related tasks and new threats would be a challenge. Associated with this are the myriad changes that Pakistans social and political structures face in the future as well.
