Pakistan Dialogues is a blog space hosted by the Mahbub ul Haq Research Centre at LUMS and is one of only a few writing platforms in Pakistan that bring research-based policy thinking to the forefront of the conversation. Written from an analytical angle, our blogs debate ways to address some of Pakistan’s most critical issues in human development, social exclusion, and inequality.  

The Pakistan Dialogues platform is a critical public good that features some of the best-known researchers in their respective fields, while also supporting the emergence of new voices to generate a rapidly growing online presence. We are actively looking for insightful pieces from LUMS faculty and students.
