Punjab, the most populous province in Pakistan, is leading the use of
technology to address every day governance problems in multiple sectors,
especially education. Relying on the ubiquitous ICT infrastructure in the
province, citizen participation in public services has been increased
drastically. This talk will highlight some of the leading technology
innovations led by Punjab government - a view on governance in Pakistan not
covered by the media.
Inam is the director of the Technology for the People Initiative (TPI),
which is a university-wide center at LUMS enabling multi-disciplinary
faculty-led teams, students and individuals to explore technology
interventions in partnerhsip with the public sector. In the past, Inam has
worked closely with the Punjab and Sindh government as an ICT consultant to
promote governance reform using technology, such as using feedback to
reduce corruption. He has led multiple initiatives that focus on leveraging
technology to increase citizen engagement and government transparency. Inam
is from Lahore and holds a bachelor's degree of science from LUMS.
This event is sponsored by the Center on Democracy, Development, and the
Rule of Law and the Center for South Asia.
