Over the last decade, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Merged Areas (MA) have experienced security challenges and large-scale population displacements. The merger, one of the most significant political reforms in Pakistan’s 70-year history, is an unprecedented extension of constitutional rights and governance structures to 5 million of the poorest people in Pakistan.NGO Jobs 2021 – Land Revenue Officer in UNDP Pakistan
In its broadest sense, the reform process involves the extension of constitutional rights to these districts, which include elections for local governments, the extension of rule of law institutions, and an empowered legislature. However, this path is by no means certain. Recent research undertaken through this project has underlined some of the risks, including the danger of seeing reforms as a merely technical and mechanistic process.NGO Jobs 2021 – Land Revenue Officer in UNDP Pakistan
