Islamabad Security Dialogue is Pakistan’s premier forum that brings together global and local intelligentsia to generate ideas shaping the global society.



Islamabad: Pakistan is all set to host its first-ever security dialogue with an aim to define the country’s new strategic direction in line with the prime minister’s vision of peace, regional connectivity and development partnerships with the world.
Prime Minister Imran Khan will inaugurate the two-day (March 17-18) conference called Islamabad Security Dialogue and the Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa will be the keynote speaker on the second day of the conference in which top scholars and diplomats would also participate. The summit being held in Islamabad will be live-streamed to reach a wider audience.
The unique venture aims to bring together global and local intelligentsia to debate Pakistan’s critical national security issues, and generate ideas to work towards combined solutions to complex challenges. One of the key objectives of the forum is to include and engage the country’s influential research institutes in the policymaking on domestic and international issues. The idea of transforming the think tanks into policy hubs is to help make informed policy decisions. The dialogue also aims to help bridge the divide between university researchers and policymakers.

National Security Division (NSD) is organising the Islamabad Security Dialogue in collaboration with its advisory board comprising five leading think tanks including Centre for Aerospace and Security Studies (CASS), Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI), Institute of Strategic Studies (ISSI), Institute of Regional Studies (IRS) and National Defence University (NDU)’s Institute of Strategic Studies, Research and Analysis (ISSRA).

Policy experts
The dialogue will bring current and former officials and local and global security and policy experts to discuss comprehensive dimensions of security, not only national security but also the economic, environmental and human security.

Some of the invited experts include former US ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter, director of China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations Dr Hu Shisheng, Pakistan’s national security advisor Dr Moeed Yusuf, President of CASS Air Chief Marshal (R) Kaleem Saadat, commerce advisor Abdul Razak Dawood, international politics expert Miles Kahler, director of International Crisis Group’s Asia program Laurel Miller among others.
The Munich security conference inspired summit is envisioned as Pakistan’s leading intellectual platform to debate national and regional security challenges and contribute to the peaceful resolution of conflicts.
PM Khan will also launch the first of its kind advisory portal of the national security division to bridge the traditional gap between public intellectuals and policymakers. “The NSD portal will allow national think tanks and universities working on national security to directly offer policy recommendations to the government and can be pathbreaking in this regard” the official statement said.

i heard zaid hamid in 2007 talking about 5th generation war and how indian penetrating thru terrorist organization sometime they both exaggerate but they are way better than those indians who give 1 hour lecture how they blast Pakistani baloon with missile and how dove now a days are used with chip for spying..
Their is no doubt india is using all its energy to destablize Pakistan but now they have no choice to send mody to Pakistan before its Pakistans turn to give india same medicine, they want to forget and move on,
China slapping india hard to put them in their auqat.

Food security, economic stability new addition to Pakistan’s national security domain: PM

ISLAMABAD, March 17 (APP):Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said it was time for Pakistan to get stronghold of national security by expanding its domain to key areas including climate change, economic stability and food security, besides focusing on military strength.

Addressing at the launch of first annual Islamabad Security Dialogue, the Prime Minister stressed the need for addressing the challenges of several non-traditional security threats confronting the general population.

“A secure State is where common people own it and believe that they have stakes in it,” he said, pointing that the goals of national security could not be achieved in an environment with handful of affluent and a sea of poor populace.




The Prime Minister paid tribute to the country’s armed forces and law enforcement agencies for making the nation feel secure in tough situations particularly in the wake of 9/11.

He termed food security a big challenge for Pakistan in the coming decades and expressed concern over the unprecedented situation of importing of 4 million ton wheat in a year.

In April, he said, the government would launch a comprehensive strategy to address availability of food through accurate mapping of exact demand.



The Prime Minister on the occasion launched the National Security Advisory Portal which will take onboard thinktanks, intellectuals and security experts to give input on matters related to national security.

PM’s Special Assistant on National Security Dr Moeed Yousaf said the first ever Islamabad Security Dialogue was in line with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision who had pointed out about the gap between strategic thinkers and the government’s policy-makers.


He said National Security Division had developed strategies focusing on leveraging Pakistan’s economic footprint and also stressing upon a cultural shift to promote the country’s soft image abroad.

These are the kind of institutional steps that are needed and will contribute towards the creation of a stable governing environment.

Imran Khan's government is doing well in taking these steps on a fairly regular basis. Let us hope for the best.
