Pakistani Bureaucracy: Crisis of Governance and Prospects of Reform

This paper is divided into three parts. The first part provides an overview of literature on how the role and assessment of bureaucracy in the Third World in general and Pakistan in particular has undergone change. The second part examines the changing socioeconomic profile and corresponding attitudinal changes if any, in Pakistan’s bureaucracy. The third part provides guidelines for possible reform in Pakistan’s federal bureaucracy.
