First Focus Groups a Success

March 17, 2010

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.

February 11, 2010

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.
