In order to imbibe the national cohesion in the younger generation of the Pakistan, the role of students, political and religious leaders are imperative. Center of Pakistan and International Relations (COPAIR) organizes conferences, dialogues and interactive sessions that assist in realizing the sense of kinship and belonging to Pakistan.
Pakistan, a sovereign ideological state is a melting pot of multiple ethnicities, cultures and languages, and ranked among largest refugee-hosting and charitable countries in the world. A country of more than 22 million population possess political, ethnic and religious differences among different segments of society, which is giving birth to a heterogeneous society and compromising the citizen’s sense of belonging to a single and unified nation. Thereby, to address the cause of nation-building, sense of collective identity must be cemented to evade clash of identities of sub-groups present in Pakistan.
youth economic empowerment
Youth, being a national asset and valuable resource, needs to be honed through education, empowerment and engagement for harnessing them into a tremendous force for sustainable social change; and the energies and talents of the youth could be channelled into achieving sustainable, grassroots-level socio-economic development.
Youth engagement is the result where young people become involved in constructive, demanding acts that bring about meaningful social change.
