Preface 

 

Following the trends towards development of global civil society, especially in developing countries, it has become necessary to have independent think tanks, which undertake objective analyses of domestic and international events and policies. 

“Think tank” refers to a public policy research organization, which analyses and evaluates economic, political, social and strategic policies and issues. It provides an in depth analysis of national policies and suggests policy guidelines and recommendations. It influences decision-makers, Track-Two diplomacy, academia, media, public opinion and civil society. The efficacy of these institutions has come to be recognized worldwide because of their contributions to decision-making processes and in creating informed public opinion through studies and analyses.  

Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI), established in 1999 as an autonomous think tank, is dedicated to provide well-analyzed policy inputs and options to formulate responses to meet domestic and international challenges confronting Pakistan. 

A number of such think tanks have developed in Pakistan in the public and private sectors. Some are autonomous and funded by the government while others are affiliated with the universities or run by non-governmental organizations (NGOs). 

Directories of think tanks exist in some countries, besides a world directory. NIRA’s World Directory of Think Tanks 2002 (Fourth Edition) compiled and published by the Center for Policy Research Information, National Institute for Research Advancement (NIRA), YGP Towe 34 F, 4-20-3, Ebisu, Shibuyu-kv, Tokyo 150-6034, Japan gives information on 320 think tanks from 77 countries, but includes hardly two institutes from Pakistan. 

IPRI, therefore, has compiled this detailed directory of think tanks in Pakistan. It will facilitate interaction amongst scholars who greatly benefit from exchange of views. Besides, it will also serve as a reference work incorporating a profile of 34 institutions.  

Finally, we are grateful to all those institutions and persons who have provided IPRI with the necessary data. Without their help, this directory, the first of its kind in Pakistan, could not have been compiled. Comments and suggestions for further improvement will be welcome.

Founding date with brief history

Established in 1979. The Institute has focused mainly on research on Pakistan society and politics, education, economy, foreign policy and security issues, regional and global developments related to Pakistan and the Muslim World and the issues with regard to Islamic Studies and Islamisation. It has produced around 200 publications and over 1000 unpublished reports. Seminars and conferences are a regular feature at IPS. Besides research activities, the Institute has a training program for both corporate and social sectors. It has 30 members at its National Academic Council. Plans and priorities are set in the light of advice and guidance given by the NAC. 

     It seeks support and collaboration as well as extends cooperation to organizations with identical objectives in one or more areas of research. This coordination could be one-time, time-specific, or discipline-based and includes conducting joint research projects, cosponsoring of seminars and exchange of library and archives facilities. Realizing that collaboration among organizations of identical objectives plays a healthy role in achieving the targets, IPS has mutual cooperation with a number of national and international institutions.

Founding date with brief history

Established in 1973 with funding from the Ford Foundation and the Provincial Government of Sindh. From its inception, the centre has undertaken research on issues in applied economics with special interest being focused in the areas of agriculture, human resources, urban and regional economics, and public finance. With subsequent growth of the Centre, its activities have broadened to include the advance training of economists from all parts of Pakistan.  A major development in this connection has been the introduction of its own post-graduate degree programme, the Master of Applied Science (Economics), which began in 1977. Since 1988, this has been upgraded to MPhil/PhD programme.

Founding date with brief history

The Area Study Centre for Europe, University of Karachi was established under an Act of Parliament (No. XLV of 1975).

     The Centre was established in 1974. Between the years 1974-76 the Centre organized its Masters Programme (MA in European Studies). Along with the Masters programme the Centre also launched its European Languages programme. Courses were offered at Certificate and Diploma levels in French, German, Spanish, Russian, Turkish and Italian. Between 1976-1984 the Centre was without any significant activity. Since 1985 the Centre launched a research and publications programme. The administration was reorganized and streamlined. All the statutory bodies viz., the Board of Governors, Academic Committee, Selection Board etc. were constituted. In 1987 the Area Study Centre for Europe shifted to its newly built premises on the Karachi University campus. 

      The Centre now has an MPhil course work programme and an MPhil/PhD in European Studies. It also offers certificate courses in French, German, English and Italian languages.

Areas of research

European History, Politics, Society, Economy, Philosophy and Foreign Relations

     Since the EU-sponsored programme in European Studies began in 1998, as envisaged in the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Government of Pakistan and the European Commission, the syllabi were restructured to focus upon the European Union.

Founding date with brief history

SPDC was incorporated as non-profit limited liability company in April 1995 with headquarters in Karachi. 

     It is a policy research institution and its services are in demand by the government, civil society, academia, students and donors. Its research is aimed at raising the comprehension and awareness of the issues and problems of social development and influencing government policies. Initially, it established its reputation in the area of economic and fiscal policy, but has now shifted more of its research to areas like poverty, inequality, education, governance, gender and pro-poor macro economic policy. 

    It represents the evolution of the four-year process of research and training since 1991 undertaken through a series of research grants from CIDA as a support to planning for the Social Action  Programme of Governments in Pakistan. The seven-year contribution agreement with CIDA for SPDC Project became effective on 1 June 1995. The SPDC Board believes that the use of analytical tools in developing public policy is necessary to ensure sustainability and cost effectiveness of services from design to implementation and subsequent operations and managements.
