PIPS Programmes

The PIPS launched a multifaceted de-radicalization programme during 2008 under the banner of “Awareness Campaign for Peace”. The programme included certain interventions at societal and media levels that included: Building partnerships with moderate Islamic scholars to produce and disseminate ideological and counter-argument responses; Civil society and community interventions; Engaging media and academia to better understand the issue and create awareness about it; Using community radio to give ‘peace’ messages in conflict zones.

These PIPS de-radicalization interventions are frequently informed and supported by its various empirical research initiatives to understand phenomenon of radicalization in Pakistan. The research studies at PIPS in this regard have been focusing some broader areas of the issue including: Evolution of radicalization in Pakistan: A historical perspective; Understanding and analyzing the patterns, trends and levels of radicalization in Pakistani society; Patterns and trends of radicalization at societal level in Islamabad: A case study; Evolution of counter-terrorism legislation in Pakistan; Impact of Radicalization at various societal levels in Pakistan; Radicalization in Pakistani youth: A case for group studies.

Some outcomes of these studies were published in the first two issues of the PIPS research journal Conflict and Peace Studies: Oct-Dec 2008 and Jan-March 2009.
