Center for Alternative Development Initiatives

CADI aims to loosen the hold of reductionist and materialistic thoughts, structures, practices and behaviors which produce social cancers including elite globalization, poverty, environmental destruction, chemical poisoning, physician-induced diseases, injustice, malnutrition and moral corruption, among others. CADI, in its pursuit of sustainable development, provides research, education, training, networking and consultations in many areas of the newly emerged second and more holistic scientific revolution. The new sciences as well as discoveries in existing disciplines (quantum physics, holistic biology, mentalistic brain research, psycho-neuro-immunology, transpersonal psychology, reflexive sociology, associative economics, linguistics, epistemology, and others) are clearly pointing to the reality and activity of Spirit in Nature, Human Beings, and Society. Societal policies and initiatives should therefore reflect these new scientific and spiritual realities rather than the outmoded and limited materialistic concepts of the 19th century.

Center for Research & Security Studies

CRSS is Pakistan’s first think-tank of its kind founded by civil society activists, committed to the cause of independent research and nonpartisan analysis to help people in and outside Pakistan better understand this nation of 180 million. We observe and analyze developments, discuss and disseminate ideas and provide a forum for technocrats, academics and members of civil society – within and outside of Pakistan – to suggest solutions and develop road-maps for Pakistan’s democratic and economic development. We think, write and speak in order to encourage all segments of the Pakistani society including intelligentsia, academia and the government to join their strengths for a freer, more democratic and a tolerant Pakistan. CRSS wants Pakistan and the region to be safe, secure and democratic. We yearn and strive for rule of law in Pakistan, a fundamentally essential pre-requisite for the country’s socio-political and economic progress. We want a Pakistan where citizens could claim a complete array for their social rights from education to health, safety, civil liberties and freedoms. The Center aims to contribute in building a Pakistan where every citizen has the opportunity to progress as far as his or her talent can take him or her. We believe in, and promote good governance, rule of law, accountability, and independent judiciary – elements that are fundamental to the country’s political and economic progress. The Center strongly stands for and advocates the democratic model of “separation of powers.” We want the Executive, the Legislative and the Judiciary in Pakistan to recognize their limits and show favor to none. CRSS firmly believes in democracy and understands that only “more democracy” could resolve the problems of the Pakistani democracy. We are strongly against any form of dictatorship. As democrats, we stand for an across-the-board and institutionalized accountability that favors none. The Center is committed to creating a society informed and aware of rights and responsibilities. We firmly believe that a democratic Pakistan is an achievable dream and CRSS, as part of the civil society, would continue to promote and strengthen democratic culture in Pakistan. The Center looks forward to hearing from you for any form of improvement of the site or the mission. All the material on the site is for public consumption.

Center for Strategic and International Studies

Research: Since its establishment, CSIS has seen its basic mission in terms of being a vehicle for new and independent ideas particularly within Indonesia. In an era of centralised policy making in the early Soeharto years, this meant (apart from general public education) more of a focus on providing policy advice and ideas direct to government. With changing developments within Indonesia, CSIS audiences have become steadily more diverse, particularly through the growth in influence of NGOs, civil society groups and the media during the 1980s and after.
