Abstract

Among the six nations identified as middle powers by conducting a cluster analysis of the CIAP, Pakistan has been part of this category since 1997. While Pakistan’s development in aggregated capabilities since the end of the Cold War seems impressive, it is necessary to investigate more precisely whether Pakistan satisfies the three criteria outlined in Chap.  4, namely a middle power’s control over resources, exercising responsibility in regional affairs and having military self-sufficiency.
