The ‘Extremism Watch Project’ aims to address the need to define the concept of extremism as it exists in Pakistan today. The objective is to outline and categorise the forms taken by religiously motivated violence, define the context for each category and trace existing trends to inform civil society representatives and policy-makers of the complexities that attend the use of such violence by groups and individuals.
Jinnah Institute’s mandate has been to engage government and civil society within Pakistan and abroad, to develop and advocate a discourse centered on the values of equitable democratic and social entitlements, pluralism, rule of law and transparent governance. In doing so, our initiative the “Changing Pakistan” aims to highlight the positive stories coming out of Pakistan with a view to maximizing space for positive advocacy at the national, regional and global level. Reports and essays under this initiative range from economic achievement to culture and art as mediums of secular expression.
