My International Policy
Fellowship research has been undertaken with support from the Open Society
Institute in Budapest.
During the first phase of my fellowship (April 2005 to August
2006), I focused on the issue of 'Participation in the process of
developing Pakistan's Poverty Reduction Strategy
Paper' (PRSP). The specific objectives of this research were as follows:
To improve the quality of analysis, highlight lessons learned, and
to provide recommendations to enhance ownership of international
Encourage greater participation in poverty alleviation through
means feasible both for the Pakistan Government (Ministry of Finance and
other relevant ministries), its donors (World Bank and other multilateral
and bilateral donors), and the public at large
To identify means to facilitate participation for ensuring country
ownership and greater effectiveness of international development efforts to
alleviate poverty, particularly with reference to the PRSP
Subsequently, I have
been granted a Continuing Fellowship by the IPF (August 2007 to 2008) to
examine the issue of how land tenancy arrangements are being influenced by
the PRSP process.
