Topic: 18th Amendment & the Power Dynamics in Pakistan

Being simulated for the first time, the Law & Justice committee at YLP this year will allow delegates to analyze the topic from a law and policy perspective. The committee shall be looking at the 18th amendment in the constitution of Pakistan with a new lens. We shall be analyzing the amendment with liberty to have endless discourse around it. A special emphasis shall be placed on the power dynamics of Pakistan and how the amendment opened avenues for discourses from both opposition & those who fully support it. We will also focus on how the amendment has given rise to new ideas of provinces being able to sustain themselves, and new emerging questions about the role of the federation, and its bodies, such as the NAB.
