Annual Report
2011
Pakistan Studies, like most area studies, came into being after the 1971 crisis. The political upheavals of the country led the
ruling elite and the intelligentsia to the conclusion that there was an urgent need to study Pakistani society in a manner that
would contribute to national cohesion and strength. The first consequence of such ideas was the establishment of the
Department of Pakistan Studies in 1973 at the University of Islamabad, now known as Quaid-i-AzamUniversity. Later, an act of
Parliament, passed in 1976, provided for the establishment of several Pakistan Studies centers in various universities of the
country and the National Institute of Pakistan Studies in the Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad. The Institute started
functioning in 1983.
The National Institute of Pakistan Studies facilitates the study of languages, literature, economy and political and social
structure. Located at the federal university where region-wise quota is observed for admissions, the NIPS provides an ideal
platform for the understanding of cultural diversity across Pakistan and to create cohesion among various segments of the
community.
