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.
