The seminar is organized to share the findings of a study on mapping policy research in Pakistan. The study led by Professor Geof Wood and Arif Naveed, is based on an extensive engagement with think-tanks, academic institutions and policy makers, which maps the key institutions in Pakistan conducting policy relevant research.
The study also explores the political economy dynamics of policy research covering issues such as barriers to conducting policy research, process of commissioning research and the challenges in the uptake of research into policies. This first seminar will present the overview of key actors engaged in policy research pertinent to sectors/themes such as economics; agriculture, food security and nutrition; health; poverty, equity, gender and social policy; governance, politics and political economy; conflict and peace; and evaluation. It also presents the major research interests of these key actors, geographic focus of their research and financial resources available to them.
