Fighting to the End

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by asking which, if any, elements of the Pakistan Army’s strategic culture could evolve over any policy-relevant future. It considers the various empirically demonstrated sources of change within the Pakistan army’s recruitment policies and outcomes and conclude with a discussion of the implications of these changes for the future of the institution and, by extension, the stability of Pakistan and of the region. The geographical recruitment base of the army has expanded from several districts in northern Punjab to include many districts in militancy-afflicted Southern Punjab, much of KP, Sindh, FATA, and even parts of Balochistan; the chapter documents this expansion here.

Keywords:   Pakistan army’ recruitment policies, Pakistan army’s strategic culture
