Demographics and Security: The Contrasting Cases of Pakistan and Bangladesh
Journal of South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies
This Paper argues that many of the observed dissimilarities between Pakistan and Bangladesh stem, at least in part, from demographic differences, some of which can be attributed to the two countries' diverse human development policies. Each nation, for example, has had notably different relations with non-governmental organization (NGOs). We examine the ways in which demographic factors have affected the security postures of Bangladesh and Pakistan.
