Who we are?

The Shahid Javed Burki Institute of Public Policy at NetSol (BIPP) is an independent, not for profit institution which aims at: promoting rights and evidence based inclusive policy making; filling institutional void and professionalizing the key public policy areas; and, serving as a knowledge hub for policy analysis, development and implementation. The public policy process in Pakistan has been characterized generally by huge rationality deficit primarily owing to a lack of serious analytical work, exclusivity and weak systemic nexus between education, research and policy formulation. The dearth of strong leadership that will make a difference at the national and local levels further aggravates the problem. BIPP's aim is to minimize this rationality deficit and produce leaders to bring tangible welfare gains for the citizens. Its Board of Governors comprises eminent experts, economists, scholars, academia and development practitioners from public, private and non-governmental sectors. As such, BIPP represents a unique blend of expertise to enrich both upstream policy process and downstream implementation.
