With all due respect to the Pittsburgh Campaign for Democracy Now! and the plasmid PCDNa3, I think it's unfortunate that this global PCDN site with almost 20,000 users doesn't rank higher on Google for the search term 'PCDN'- and that matters because I don't feel like typing 'internationalpeaceandconflict' each time I want to get to this fantastic site.
So I'm putting out a call for EVERYONE who uses this site to take one minute to use Google, type…Continue
What is the likelihood of a mass-level movement in Pakistan, of the kind we have seen in Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain and Libya? I would have said ‘very little’, if in the near past there wasn’t the notable example of the lawyers’ movement for the restoration of judiciary and democracy. Even then, there are many who would reject the possibility of another movement in the near future, because they think that the situation of Pakistan is entirely different from states that have either…Continue

By Mobeen chughtai - Look around you today and what do you see?
Confusion? Disorder? Apathy and distrust?
