Pakistan: Nation State, State Nation or Multinational State

Pakistan: Nation State, State Nation or Multinational State
Published in European Yearbook of Minorities - 2009
This essay focuses on Pakistan’s management of its ethnolinguistic mosaic. First,
a theoretical section outlines the debate surrounding the nation-state,
state-nation and multinational state, and contextualizes the case of Pakistan within
it. That is followed by an analysis of Pakistan’s development as a unitary state, with an
identity based on religion that negates its ethnolinguistic mosaic. The concluding section
discusses briefly the Pakistani federal system, and suggests that its unitary rather
than federal structure further negates its ethnolinguistic diversity.
