This Discussion Paper has been prepared to promote a frank, informed and productive discourse on the question of an orderly revival of Students’ Union in Pakistan after a ban of almost 24 years. We hope that this paper will be helpful in provoking useful discussion on some of the questions that need to be answered before a plan for the revival is agreed. We also hope that this document will serve as a primary tool of initiating the discourse at the Consultative Sessions planned by PILDAT on the subject in various cities. This Discussion paper should be regarded as a dynamic document which will continuously undergo updating based on the feedback received from various individuals and organisations. PILDAT requests all recipients of this paper to forward us their comments to further improve and update the contents.
