Recap from April: 

Many thanks to those of you who were able to join us at last month's speakers series event. A recap of this event is below:

On Tuesday, April 14th, best-selling author Omar Shahid Hamid spoke to a full house of LSE alumni on 'The future of Pakistan-U.S. Relations'. 

This LSE Civil Service, Government and Public Policy alumni event, held jointly with AFLSE, took place just a short walk from the White House at the beautiful offices of our kind host Don Dinan at Roetzel & Andress. At the event, Omar offered real expertise. His analysis of the future of Pakistan-U.S. relations was subtle but clear-sighted: despite its flaws, the Pakistan-U.S. relationship is both a strong and an important one in the modern world. Omar also discussed his excellent new book, 'The Prisoner'. The book, a novel set in the intriguing world of Pakistani security and politics, draws on Omar's experiences as the former head of Karachi's counter-terrorism police force. I'd had a chance to read Omar's thrilling book before the event and can only recommend it to anyone interested in the region, its politics and the world of counter terrorism more generally.

During the evening, Omar also dealt with Pakistan's geopolitical neighbourhood, including his take on the motivations behind Russian, Afghan and Iranian involvement in regional politics. He also analysed the recent history of terrorism in the region, offering intriguing thoughts all the way from the Soviet involvement in Afghanistan to the contemporary and delicate politics of U.S. drone strikes today. At the event, Omar showed why he's renowned as a specialist in security and foreign relations.
