Pakistan-U.S. Relations: Insights from the FieldMarch 21, 5:15pm - 7:30pm
Mānoa Campus, East-West Center Gallery, John A. Burns Hall
The United States and Pakistan share many common interests including a commitment to the fight against terrorism, yet the relationship between the two countries remains strained.
Join us for a public forum with Pakistani and U.S. journalists as they reflect on the challenges they face in communicating the issues and the very complicated relationship between the two countries.
EWC Senior Fellow Shabbir Cheema will provide a brief overview of U.S.- Pakistan relations, one of America’s most important strategic relationships crucial to regional stability. Journalists participating in the EWC’s Pakistan-U.S. Journalist Exchange will discuss the wide-ranging factors that influence U.S. engagement in Pakistan and the reaction of the Pakistani people to U.S. policy toward Pakistan.
The journalists from Pakistan represent print and broadcast media from throughout the country including Quetta, Hyderabad, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar. The American journalists represent CNN, Congressional Quarterly Roll Call, New York Times, PBS NewsHour and others. The journalists will have just returned from their study tour having met with key policy makers, government and military officials in Pakistan and the United States.
Co-sponsors: The East-West Center, Friends of the East-West Center, Pacific and Asian Affairs Council, Asian American Journalists Association-Hawai’i, Media Council Hawai'i, Society of Professional Journalists, and the UHM School of Communications.
Registration fee is $15. Please RSVP by March 19. Parking: Please pay $6 at the UH kiosk on East-West Road and park on the lawn on the mauka side of Burns Hall.
