From the Editor's Desk

With this edition of the Quarterly, I am happy to share that our MPhil program is now in its third year, it has gained momentum and is getting quite competitive. There were seventy-one applicants this year and only sixteen were admitted (2016-17). Our Executive Masters program is also gaining popularity as it marks its eighth year. Past students have been making significant progress in various fields, working in international organizations such as the UNFPA and USAID, and in government departments in Punjab (such as the Planning and Development Department) and also at the Federal level. Two new faculty members Dr. Raja Ali Saleem, Assistant Professor and Ms. Saba Shahid, Research Associate have also joined the CPPG in 2016. We welcome them and look forward to their contribution in strengthening CPPG’s commitment towards academic excellence, evidence-based research and policy advocacy. However, we are still struggling to clear the backlog for our Quarterly. This is again a multi-number that carries diversity of scholarships, deliberation and engagements, which is the spirit and soul of the CPPG. As always, critique, comments and suggestions to improve our publications are welcome.
