The year 2018 was very productive for the Center for International Strategic Studies (CISS). We published a book titled Nuclear Pakistan: Seeking Security and Stability, edited by Dr. Naeem Salik, our senior fellow. CISS also organized various seminars on a range of issues including The Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy and Pakistan; Chemical/Biological Weapons Convention: Implementation Challenges; and, a National Conference on Pakistan’s Foreign Policy: Challenges and Opportunities. The Center also convened a number of roundtables in the outgoing year with many scholars and ambassadors, including Dr. Moeed Yusuf, Dr. Christopher Clary, Dr. Tariq Rauf, H.E. Yao Jing, Chinese ambassador to Pakistan, among others. The Center launched two books titled Blind Eye: the US Non-proliferation Policy Towards Pakistan from Ford to Clinton by Dr. Rabia Akhtar, and Shaking Hands with Clenched Fists, authored by Dr. Asma Khawaja. CISS intends to continue its cooperation with international think tanks, including International Institute of Strategic Studies (IISS), London, and the Atlantic Council, Washington D.C., for joint workshops and fellowships.
