The CPPG’s monograph “China Pakistan Economic Corridor: Demands, Dividends and Directions” has been published and is available for purchase at the Centre for Public Policy and Governance, Room E-017 Elahi Building Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) Lahore.

It is also available at Readings 12 K 2, Main Boulevard Gulberg, Block K Gulberg 2, Lahore and other leading bookstores. This is the link of website from where you can order the book all over Pakistan.

The monograph looks at the socioeconomic and political implications of the CPEC for Pakistan and attempts to provide a novel academic perspective to an area of study that has long been dominated by journalistic, news-like articles. The research gives insight into some of the most pertinent challenges of governance the CPEC raises but also highlights the diverse set of opportunities the mega-project has to offer. It advocates for urgent policy reform in the management of CPEC projects in order to prioritize the potential of local economies and pushes for a human development based approach in the design and implementation process. The monograph’s unique selling point is its objective analysis of the CPEC that will hopefully provide readers multiple perspectives on a highly contentious yet highly relevant policy issue.
