It's time to let the voices of 30-35 million young Pakistanis be heard.
Will this be a youth election and will this factor be strong enough to herald major political change?
The Next Generation Pakistan research series brings the opinions and perspectives of young people in Pakistan to the forefront of policy debates. It is directed by an eminent taskforce comprising leading Pakistanis in the fields of academia, industry, journalism, media, civil society and the public sector.
The reports provide policymakers, opinion makers, stakeholders and political leaders with an insight into the potential these young people possess. Most importantly, they recommend ways of harnessing the energies of the next generation to realise the demographic opportunity Pakistan currently enjoys owing to its young population.
