Behind the News

As the Obama effect wears off and a new sheriff comes to Washington DC, Nafisa Hoodbhoy analyzes the Trump effect on the global landscape, most prominently its impact on the Pakistan region.

The interview was conducted by Sindh TV anchor Fayyaz Naich in Feb, 2017. It discusses Russia’s reinsertion in international politics and how Cold War tensions keep the US and the former super power, Russia, feuding across the globe. While Saudi-Iranian tensions and Pakistan-India rivalry feed turf wars and proxy fighting.

The conversation picks up on the updated edition of `Aboard the Democracy Train, Pakistan Tracks the Threat Within,’ printed by Paramount Books in 2016, and launched the same year in Peshawar and Quetta.
