Essay writing Competition

Essay writing Competition in University Campus (Concept Note)


Pakistan is the youth majority country where more than 65% population is below 35 years of age while the percentage of young population between 16 and 35 years is more than 40%. Youth rich Pakistan has recently seen its youth taking keen interest in the political process. The youth that is politically aware and that played a great role in significantly improving turn-out rate in the previous elections, has been deemed to have potential of being one of the major catalyst forces shaping and fueling a democratic evolution in Pakistan. This evolution is expected to inculcate responsible citizenship and pose to be a strong hedge against dictatorial takeovers in future.

The post 2013 general election political situation, allegations of rigging, counter allegation, perceivably unmet promises of the political parties, media hype and media sensationalism create a perfect recipe for a young voter who has voted for the first time in his life to get dis-satisfied with the democratic process and electoral system in Pakistan. This situation demands that the youth be educated about fundamental rights, democratic process, electoral mechanisms, functions of different organs of the state and concepts of citizenship so that they may relate themselves with the democracy and the state systems and do not get strayed from the path of democracy and pluralism.

To engage youth in civic education, CPDI has taken an initiative to work with leading universities of Pakistan and promote culture of civic learning in co-curricular activities. There shall be a range of co-curricular activities supported by this initiative including essay writing competitions. This essay writing competition will urge students to study and write about the matters related to state systems, civic rights and responsibilities, electoral and democratic processes. The ultimate intent to engage students in these activities is to make them responsible citizens who know all the above mentioned aspects of citizenship and prepare themselves for their future leadership role in society.


  • Transparency and accountability ensure strong democracy.
  • Social media has left revolutionary impact on our social and political lives
  • Only youth can guarantee prosperous future for Pakistan
