Since 2002 the Pakistan Institute of Legislative Development and Transparency (PILDAT) has worked towards strengthening democracy and democratic institutions in Pakistan. For the past few years PILDAT has been organising projects on civil-military relations, women parliamentarians and madrassa education.
To forge better understanding on civil-military relations, PILDAT has set up the Dialogue Group on Civil-Military Relations which meets to discuss relevant issues. The organisation has also been arranging discussions and training programmes with women and women parliamentarians on issues of electoral violence and electoral dispute resolution, conflict management and negotiation styles. With the hope of creating a new leadership with productive mindset to address challenges faced by Pakistan, PILDAT has created a 'Youth Parliament'.
