National Cohesion

Share this article



‘National Cohesion’ is an important prerequisite for an independent and prosperous country. Pakistan’s National Security Policy (2022-26) identified ‘National Cohesion’ as an important pillar of the country’s security architecture. National cohesion builds upon the notion that people and the nation can thrive only when they have a common strategic purpose, aim, and when they share a common future. Therefore, achieving national cohesion should remain a continuous process and states must strive for strengthening it against emerging threats and challenges. In order to consolidate Pakistan’s national cohesion, the Government must invest efforts in reinvigorating the social contract between the state and its people, ensure economic equality, improve internal security, strengthen inter-provincial harmony, revamp the judicial system through reforms, and ensure good governance and social sector development.
