Pakistan Policy Institutes Network - PPIN

A Policy Institute is an organization that plays a critical role in building a society, country and a nation. The research, analysis and policy advice related to socioeconomic aspects not only change the course of human life but also set the future directions and development path. However, the decisive role of think tanks has not yet been realized in Pakistan.

We must replace the scattered working with joint and collaborative working in order to formulate and advocate policies that can take the country out of contemporary problems and direct it towards  progress and prosperity. By building a network of policy institutes we can better plan and achieve this goal.

The network will include

  • Policy institutes in science and Technology
  • Policy institutes in education
  • Policy institute in economics and industry
  • Policy institute in planning and development
  • Policy institute in social, regional and  strategic studies
