Introduction

State of inter-institutional relations continues to be a key stumbling block to consolidation of democracy in Pakistan. The realization has been growing over the past few years that Pakistan needs some kind of dialogue among the State institutions at the highest level. The underlying thought behind this realization is that various organs and institutions of the State seem to be increasingly encroaching upon each other's space. The pitch and frequency of complaints and sometime protests against such perceived or real encroachments have been on the increase lately.

Since 2004, PILDAT has been carrying out research and promoting a dialogue in this area with the objective to restore a constitutional equation of inter-institutional relations in Pakistan.

PILDAT initiatives have focussed on enhancing the understanding of institutions about the need for an agreed set of norms to conduct the affairs of the State according to the Constitution and global conventions of democratic governance.

The key outcome of PILDAT’s focus has been defining and creation of space for credible, fact-based and non-emotive discourse within public and policy makers on the issues surrounding inter-institutional relations. Working closely with all stakeholders, PILDAT has continued to facilitate informed understanding of underlying issues, various perspectives and the associated risks to democratic governance in Pakistan.

Key Strengths

PILDAT is widely recognised for the following key strengths:

  1. Convening Power: Owing to our track-record as a serious, non-partisan organisation focused on quality of its work, PILDAT has developed a unique convening power that brings together diverse political spheres and voices from across the country on important national and global issues to affect policy reform.
  2. Relationships across the Political Spectrum: Because of PILDAT’s work over a decade in a non-partisan capacity, PILDAT enjoys relationship of respect with all key political parties. Not only political parties receive PILDAT’s reform proposals with an open mind, they often seek PILDAT’s support and advice on various policy issues relating to policy as well as internal governance. This also means that regardless of a party in opposition or in power, they are receptive to our analyses and proposals.
  3. Relationship with Media: Over the years, PILDAT has worked with the media to develop it as an ally. PILDAT’s work is sought and often quoted in the media. We take media as an important ally to further the work on reforms.
