Everyone wants more democracy not less. We need real representation not mere selecting rulers. There must be more debate on what democracy means and how we can make it more meaningful. PIDE came up with an idea to hold a Grand National Dialogue (GND), spanning over five days, with over 20 leading intellectuals from diverse backgrounds. PIDE hopes that the ideas thrown up here will be heard across the country, including power corridors and policy making domains, through different channels of communication; driving democracy to further improvement.
