Institute of Peace & Diplomatic Studies in collaboration with National University of Modern Languages is organizing one-week certificate course on “Exploring and Understanding Shanghai Cooperation Organization” especially after the inception of Pakistan and India as permanent member countries. This course has been designed for the promotion of understanding and development of deep-rooted linkages for the political, geographical, economic, cultural & business sector of Pakistan as with the communities in these states. The major objective of the workshop is to provide in-depth knowledge, understanding, & connections for better understanding and developing deep-rooted linkages with first-hand benefits to better explore the emerging opportunities and challenges of the region. The one week of the workshop is designed upon an interactive learning methodology with a holistic approach towards learning & understanding the SCO Region. Having 20 % of the world’s GDP, 75% of world’s energy resources and covering 42 % of the world populations with four declared nuclear powers, Shanghai Cooperation Organization(SCO) was established in 2001 as the intergovernmental organization of 18 countries. With the presence of Pakistan and India in the grouping and recent emergence of One Belt, One Road Initiative of 1 Trillion USD, has given the next level of significance to the organization & overall the region.
