The new issue of Policy Perspectives focuses on subjects of long-term academic value, though linking the same with current and ongoing developments in and around Pakistan in more ways than one. The issue has two articles on the Power Sector; one dealing with immediate policy priorities of the present government and resultant impact, while the other one digging deep into the theoretical debate as to how the vested interests have formidable stronghold in Pakistan’s challenged Power Sector, and why privatization of DISCOs becomes a desired step. Then there are two articles related to China; one taking up the bilateral relationship between Islamabad and Beijing in view of the evolving regional and global scenario, while the other one giving a snapshot of recent developments and  emerging strategic environment between China and India, particularly viz-a-viz the Indian Ocean.

One article looks comprehensively at the challenges facing the European Union – considered by and large the model for regional integration – in terms of continuity of the integration process and the roadblocks popping up in its way. The role of the United Nations as an intergovernmental body for promotion of peace, and relationship with grassroots Peace Movement world over is discussed in another essay.

The last article discusses, at length, the need for preparing concerned and responsible citizens in today’s world, the conceptual framework that Islam provides in this connection, and the practical way forward for a country like Pakistan.
