McGill University professor T. V. Paul will discuss the geopolitical setbacks Pakistan has faced in recent decades on Wednesday, April 2, at Ohio Wesleyan University. The program is free and open to the public.
Paul will speak at 7:30 p.m. in Benes Room B of OWU's Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 40 Rowland Ave. His 2013 book, The Warrior State: Pakistan in the Contemporary World, studies Pakistan's role as a semi-failed state and how this is a result of its position in the middle of the Cold War and the war on terror.
Paul, the author of five books and co-author of another, is known for examining issues through case studies rather than general paradigms. His work focuses on power relations, South Asia and nuclear politics.
He earned his doctorate at the University of California, Los Angeles; his master's from Maharajas College and his Master of Philosophy from the School of International Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University. He is the founding director of the McGill University of Montreal Center for International Peace and Security Studies and vice president of the International Studies Association.
