Concordance Theory in Pakistan: Response to Zulfiqar Ali

2016 (English)In: Armed forces and society, ISSN 0095-327X, E-ISSN 1556-0848, Vol. 42, no 1, p. 226-234Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In Zulfiqar Ali's article regarding concordance theory in Pakistan, Dr. Ali asserts that concordance theory does not explain domestic military intervention in Pakistan. He also suggests that concordance theory superimposes a Western theoretical model on Pakistan, like Huntington's theory of objective civilian control. In response to Dr. Ali's claims, this article reiterates how concordance theory can in fact explain why Pakistan has suffered from domestic military interventionthe alienation of the Bengali community and subsequent lack of agreement among the three concordance partners being one significant factor. Additionally, Huntington's theory focuses on institutional and dichotomous civil-military relations, grounded in the post-World War II US case study. By contrast, concordance theory views the relationship between military and society from both cultural and institutional perspectives and embraces those indigenous qualities that may encourage or discourage domestic military intervention.
