Yesterday, Freedom Forward conducted our first focus groups for the Pakistan Voices Project.
We conducted structured conversations with Pakistani and Pakistani American community members in the Atlanta and San Francisco regions. Participants shared a diverse and thoughtful range of perspectives on Pakistan and U.S.-Pakistan relations.
We are looking forward to holding additional focus groups in the days ahead. We will also be launching an online survey for those who prefer to give input from the comfort of their keyboards.

Project start: March 2010
Freedom Forward is considering applications for a limited number of volunteer research fellowships. Research Fellows will support the Pakistan Voices Project, a series of focus groups involving Pakistani and Pakistani American communities in the US.
The Pakistan Voices Project will result in a nationally released report that will inform the broader American debate on US foreign-policy towards Pakistan. Research Fellows shall make a minimum commitment of 10 hours to the project, though larger commitments offer the opportunity of more in-depth work. Research Fellows shall be credited in the final published report.

The Pakistan Voices Project is an effort by Freedom Forward to educate America about the perspectives of Pakistanis and Pakistani-Americans regarding U.S. foreign policy.
Pakistani perspectives are often missing from mainstream discourse on Pakistan and US-Pakistan relations.
Beginning in March, we will be conducting phone-based discussions involving Pakistani and Pakistani American communities in the US. The opinions and perspectives shall be documented in a report that will nationally released later this year.
