Daniel Markey, senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia at the Council on Foreign Relations, will present IRC's 2013 Eliot S. Berkley Lecture, where he will discuss his new book No Exit from Pakistan (October 2013). The book, and his lecture, will explore the tragic and often tormented relationship between American and Pakistan. Pakistan's internal troubles have already threatened US security and international peace. Pakistan's rapidly growing population, nuclear arsenal, and relationships with China and India will continue to force it upon America's geostrategic map in new and important ways over the coming decades. No Exit from Pakistan suggests how Washington can prepare for the worst, aim for the best, and avoid past mistakes.
Prior to Markey's time with the Council on Foreign Relations, he held the South Asia portfolio on the Secretary's Policy Planning Staff at the US Department of State. He has also served as executive director of Princeton's Research Program in International Security and was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard's Olin Institute for Strategic Studies.
