Objectives

Our Objectives

  1. Democratization
    The political system in Pakistan is dominated by civil-military-judicial establishments and a limited political class.
    1. Alliance is seeking and supporting reforms to transfer power from state bureaucratic establishments to the people of Pakistan.
    2. Alliance proposes to explore proportional representation that can pave way for representation and empowerment of multiple professional and occupational groups (teachers, doctors, engineers, lawyers, students, overseas, farmers, traders, industrialists etc.).
    3. Alliance also proposes legislation to democratise the governance system and curb monopolies of certain groups on political parties and associations.
  2. Professionalism in Public Sector
    Public sector in Pakistan is ailing with politicization, corruption, and inefficiency. Alliance is working on reforms in public sector organisations.
  3. Constructive Politics
    Pakistani politics is mired in abuse, scandal, and useless power politics. Alliance is looking for reforms to change direction of Pakistani politics to socio-economic agenda from politics of ethnicity, religion, and scandalous abusive conflicts.
  4. Global and Regional Integration
    Alliance is exploring reform agenda for a peaceful South Asia making Pakistan a regional hub of economic activity at the center of two largest counties (China, India) and Central Asia/Russia. Alliance is also supporting reforms for making Pakistan a global hub through becoming center of economic activities for US, Europe, Middle East, and East Asia.

Campaigns

Our Campaigns

  1. Bring ‘Out of School Children in School’
    Pakistan has one of the largest numbers of out of school children. A society can’t become developed or civilized which has such scary statistics. Alliance is striving to highlight issue in social and digital media and bring the issue in mainstream media and political/economic debates at national level. Join us
  2. Mainstreaming Science and Technology (STEM)
    Syllabus in Pakistan is focus on cultural agendas. Due to unified board systems for schools and Madaras, schools and Madaras are compelled to teach specific type of courses, which don’t fulfill contemporary needs. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) are taught on the periphery as one of the subjects out of so many cultural subjects at primary and secondary levels. At higher levels, the syllabus is bifurcated in two obligatory groups of science and arts, which restrict choices and changes course in future difficult. The same is true for university departments, where cultural subjects are consuming funds without clear return. Alliance supports important cultural subjects without cultural agenda but with due weightage. The focus of the syllabus and institutes should be on STEM. Join us
  3. Digitization of Society
    Pakistan has huge numerical advantage over other countries regarding digital penetration. But in relative terms, we are at the lowest in the world. We need to address the digital divide, which after education is the prime definer of social status and progress. We need to provide infrastructure across the country and devices to every Pakistani. To digitize all segments of society and economy including production, distribution, in manufacturing and service delivery in services sector. Join us
  4. Clean Energy
