The Crisis in Balochistan | United States Institute of Peace

Balochistan, a vast yet sparsely populated province in southwestern Pakistan, has been a source of conflict and instability for decades.
The Baloch people inhabit a poverty-stricken area rich in natural resources straddling Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan. Clashes between the government of Pakistan and local leaders over autonomy, wealth distribution, and the sheltering of insurgents have risen dramatically in intensity in the last year, with implications for regional stability and the war against Islamic militancy.
