This report gives voice to 1,800 young people in Pakistan and allows their stories to be told. Responsibly depicting the roots, causes and effects of conflict in Pakistan in a single piece of research was extremely challenging.
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 task force 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.
