Leveraging Change: Developing a Gender Niche in Policing in Pakistan

Aliya Sethi

Setting the Context
Making a visible and sustainable impact in the domain of equality between
women and men seeks commitment and capacity from all the cooperation partners
to conceive and execute result oriented development interventions. Gender reforms
are essentially political in nature aiming at structural and systemic changes, often
contested and resisted by the power holders, thus entail struggle by the advocates to
transform unequal power relations. Commitment and capacity for change are
therefore critical factors to translate the struggle into practice in the form of pertinent
strategies, approaches and actions.
