Due to the growing escalation of COVID-19 cases in Pakistan, the PSIR conference on "Challenges of Governance in Pakistan amid the COVID-19 Pandemic" initially scheduled for April 6-7, 2021 is postponed until further notice.

Pakistan faced myriad of grievous governance challenges even before the COVID-19 pandemic, which are laid bare during the times of pandemic. Lessons emerging from the outbreak of disease across the world demonstrate that an effective governance structure is needed to cushion people against devastating impacts by taking necessary measures. In times of crisis, the state’s responsibility to provide political, social and economic goods and services to its people is accentuated even more. The enormity of the situation brought about by the pandemic demands careful reflection on the nature and effectiveness of the governance in Pakistan beyond health sector. This conference aims at elevating the academic debate to identify contemporary intricate issues and ascertain related viable solutions to inform policy decisions.
