The Islamabad Policy Research Institute organized a special webinar under its National Dialogue
Series on “Security and Development in Balochistan: Existing Dynamics and Way Ahead” here in the
Eminent speakers included Lt. General (R) Nasser Khan Janjua, Former National Security
Advisor and Southern Command Commander; Mr Jan Jamali, Former Chief Minister Balochistan; Mr
Rafiullah Kakar, a development and policy expert from Balochistan; and Dr Farhan Hanif Siddiqi,
Director at School of Politics and International Relations, Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad.
In his Opening Address Acting President IPRI, Brigadier (R) Raashid Wali Janjua flagged the
attention of panelists towards multidimensional nature of Baloch grievances, focusing on human
security imperatives and their linkage with overall security and development of the province. Without a
healthy symbiosis between state’s security efforts and province’s development needs with a people-
centric focus, peace and development would remain an elusive goal.
