Pakistan’s media has undergone a dramatic transformation over the last decade, from being largely state-run to being saturated with satellite television channels, newspapers and radio stations. The result has been a media sector depicted by some as the vanguard of democracy and by others as polarizing and extremist. This event will feature a panel discussion among a number of prestigious media figures from Pakistan and U.S. experts, focusing on the complex role that the new Pakistani media plays in shaping both domestic and international policies. We will hear first-hand accounts of how they approach their work as well as how they perceive its importance in the dynamics of US-Pakistan relations and other key issues of the day.
