Amer Raza, now a Ph.D. candidate in University of Massachusetts, has been teaching in the University of Peshawar. We discuss the inner working of a Pakistani university from the perspective of an insider.

Listen to this and let us reinvigorate research and debate into change.
Listen to this fascinating discussion. There is much to learn and research here.
