Lahore Journal of Policy Studies is a refereed biannual journal.
The journal has a broad scope. It will cover national, regional
and international political, economic, social and cultural issues
of immediate relevance to public policy. It aims to be a forum
for significant new ideas and seeks to challenge thinkers and
intellectuals to policy debate. It is neither a journalistic
magazine nor a technical one. It is rather a scholarly journal
containing provocative, thoughtful, but well-researched writings
with an educated and discerning readership in mind. It seeks
originality and vigour of argument. The selection of papers
will be based on topicality, originality and clarity, the extent
to which they advance knowledge, understanding and application
and their likely contribution towards inspiring further development,
research and debate. We consider promotion of discussion and
debate as the most important mandate of a policy research journal.
We welcome serious comments and rejoinders as short article
for publication. We promise a wide dissemination specifically
in Pakistan but generally in the region. It is therefore a journal
for academics who have something to say and to convey or to
contend in the social, economic or the political fields.
Lahore Journal of Policy Studies is hosted by the Lahore School
of Economics, Lahore.
