Introduction

PILDAT’s focus on Political Parties in Pakistan has been as varied as the gamut reflecting areas of democratic governance in Pakistan. From studying and disseminating party manifestos for citizens to make informed electoral choices based on party’s pledges to building capabilities of parliamentary parties on effective discharge of legislative capacities; from facilitating and supporting multi-party parliamentary caucuses on issues such as water resources, inter-faith relations, decentralisation and issues of women and youth to studying and analysing internal democracy of political parties; and working together with decision-making circles of key political parties on developing internal structures and think tanks to developing policy pledges on a varied set of policies including civil-military relations and national security, health and education, labour and economic management, PILDAT has been a trusted partner and facilitator of strengthening of political parties in Pakistan.

As a non-partisan, indigenous political think tank, PILDAT is widely respected and trusted across the range of political parties to provide a fact-based and evidence-based analysis that can steer informed discourse in policy making as well as opinion-makers circles and facilitate required reforms.

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.
