Abstract
"The Center on Contemporary Conflict (CCC), with support from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), held the sixth iteration of the U.S.-Pakistan Strategic Dialogue (Track II) on September 18-19, 2011 in Phuket, Thailand. The dialogue was held in partnership with and through the local support of the Institute for Security and International Studies (ISIS). Like all five past dialogues, the aim was to draw upon the core themes from the current regional and strategic climate with explicit focus on strategic stability in the region. The expected outcome will possibly inform official discussions in both countries, especially for those who are involved in policymaking and implementation. Once again, like the previous iterations, this dialogue brought together top American and Pakistani scholars, former officials, and observers to address the very important strategic issues that affect the relationship between the two countries and suggest pathways for resolving these issues. The panels arranged in this year's agenda sparked in-depth and frank discussions on a variety of security issues. The first day was organized to discuss overall U.S.-Pakistan Relations and Strategic Balancing in South Asia. The second day focused solely on Deterrence Stability in South Asia with a specific focus on the impact of military modernizations, including: the nuclear and conventional fields, the potential introduction of tactical nuclear weapons (TNW), and new technologies in the complex strategic environment of South Asia."
