About Rabia Akhtar, Ph.D.
I hold a Ph.D in Security Studies from Kansas State University. My dissertation was titled “The Counter Narrative: U.S. Non-Proliferation Policy towards Pakistan From Ford to Clinton.” I have conducted a foreign policy analysis of executive-legislative interactions in U.S. foreign policy making and related issues in Congressional oversight of U.S. foreign policy towards Pakistan during the course of its nuclear weapons development under five U.S. administrations. I was awarded the Fulbright Scholarship in 2010 for my doctoral studies. My co-authored research monograph on “Nuclear Learning in South Asia” was published in Jan 2015 by the Regional Center of Strategic Studies (RCSS), Colombo, Sri Lanka.
