2019 marks twenty years since IPRI came into existence. Founded in 1999, IPRI has been the podium of choice for policymakers, thought-leaders and scholars working on security, international affairs, governance and socioeconomic issues that impact Pakistan.
There is certainly much to consider when preparing for such a landmark occasion. The age of an organization says nothing about the strength of its origin, its vitality in terms of its mission and activities, or even its culture at any special moment in time. This is not only a time for celebration for the Institute, but also one of reflection, to consider the present challenges which Pakistan faces in the global community, and look ahead to the next twenty years of positive change.
