In the past decade Pakistan has become a country of immense importance to its region, the US and the world. With almost 200 million people, a 500,000-man army, nuclear weapons and a large diaspora in Britain and North America, Pakistan is of singular importance in the volatile South Asia region. At this Wednesday Lunch at the Lowy Institute, Anatol Lieven, a professor in the department of war studies at King's College, London, presents a portrait of a country with a deeply flawed but nonetheless working system, tougher and more resilient than is usually assumed. Presented by the Lowy Institute, June 2011
