  • Investigating Mearsheimer's Offensive Realism and Asia: A Critical
           Appraisal

    • Authors: Zulqarnain, Siraj Ahmed Nizamani
      Pages: 1 - 9
      Abstract: There had been constant efforts by nation-states to explain the States’ behaviour and the complexities of the international political system. Realism and Liberalism emerged as notable theories to understand these complexities. Realism focused on power acquisition, Liberalism stressed economic development and cooperation. As the global political landscape became more complex during the cold war days as a result of the emergence of new states- different theories and ideas were marked obscure. The academic insights of neo-realism and new liberalism set new parameters to evaluate the state’s behaviour during the cold war days. There were again more practical efforts in post-cold-wars days by the academic community of international relations to restudy the changing behaviour of states with a new lens of analysis. It paved the way for both offensive and defensive realism. This paper investigates. Mearsheimer’s offensive realism as the offshoot of neorealism. It further develops a critical appraisal based on deductive research methodology to evaluate the reliability of this theoretical offshoot.

    • Authors: Talal Maqbool
      Pages: 10 - 18
      Abstract: Marxism is a theory which has been criticized by many but still is relevant to the date. Karl Marx a German Philosopher who changed the way people used to the Capitalist class. Marx was not only a philosopher but also a voice for the working class. Many argue on the Marxian religion and Political system, but Marxism stands different than all. The theory of Karl Marx can be divided into three parts the Economical the Political and the Religious. But theory and practice are different things. The core argument of Karl Marx was to end the class system by making a class less society and eliminating capitalist from all the business. Karl Marx wanted the power and decision to hold in the hands of the working class. To date this debate is alive that was Karl Marx’s solution sufficient enough to solve the issues of the working class or was it all useless.

  • Pakistan’s Experiences with IMF Programs, 1958-2021: Stagnation or
           Development'

    • Authors: Dr. Niaz Murtaza, Aqib Rauf Abbasi
      Pages: 58 - 83
      Abstract: Pakistan is among the most regular clients of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Currently too, Pakistan is part of an on-going IMF program which is suspended due to differences of opinions between Pakistani and IMF officials on policy actions. In addition, the trajectory of Pakistan’s key economic indicators after IMF programs over seven decades has been highly mixed. Overall, the main IMF conditions of currency depreciation, indirect tax, interest, utility and energy rate hikes and privatization have failed to deliver sustainable growth or even fiscal or external deficit reduction. There is little in IMF conditions focused on growth-inducing policies by increasing exports or foreign direct investment as IMF has no expertise in these areas. But then many analysts ask why global powers have created an entity to bail out developing states in crisis which specializes only in growth-reducing policies. Thus, IMF programs/conditions may look necessary from a narrow, short-term view as in their absence, states may face even greater pain. However, from a broader, long-term perspective, they clearly seem as a poor basis for ensuring sustainable growth in developing states, which requires structural changes in the global economic system.

  • Building Citizens ‘Trust in Government Through Twitter: An Alternative
           of Poor Communication Between Government and Public

    • Authors: Dr. Shah Nawaz Mangi, Dr. Abdul Razzak Larik
      Pages: 84 - 98
      Abstract: Across the world, social networking systems are becoming a major source of interaction between government and people. Governments are utilizing this channel for the provision of information and developing public positive opinion whereby the public can approach government or its officials to make informed decisions. Due to direct communication between ruler and the ruled, chances of transparency, responsiveness, and accountability increase, which ultimately enhances the public level of trust in government. Therefore, the current study argues that uncertain, weak, and hesitant relationships between government and people will negatively affect public trust. Thus, social network systems, especially Twitter can play an alternative role. It may enable a commoner to interact with his/her representatives without any bureaucratic involvement. In this study, the researchers investigated how the use of an officer's Twitter account for online communication affects Pakistani citizens' trust in their government. We surveyed 390 people who followed a government agency's Twitter account and analyzed the data using structural equation analysis. The study found that the credibility of a leading officer's Twitter feed influenced citizens' trust in the relevant agency and the central government. Trust in Twitter as a governmental medium also positively influenced this expansion of trust. However, the study had some limitations, including a small sample size and insufficient consideration of Pakistani organizational culture factors. It did not examine the relationship between local governments and residents or consider how demographic characteristics affect citizens' trust. Future research should address these gaps and explore the factors that influence citizens' trust in the government, including the expertise, attractiveness, and friendliness of spokespersons.
