On March 25, 2019, Malik Siraj Akbar spoke at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. on "Pakistan, Its Politics and Regional Stability". The event was hosted at the School of Foreign Service by SFS Graduate School Council where Malik spoke about Pakistan under the leadership of Imran Khan, the recent standoff with India, negotiations between the Taliban and the United States and the future of the region.
Students asked questions about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and how it was perceived in the country, specifically in Balochistan, home to the Gwadar Port. Malik spoke about the news media, minority rights and the role of political parties and NGOs in the country's stability.
David Blechman, leader of the SFS Graduate School Council, introduced Malik to the audience while Anthony Orlando, a Georgetown student, moderated the Q&A session.
