All pieces are present. We've worked hard and made our place in the national debates. Its time to shift gears. I call upon the brain trust of PDF to come forward and help build this community into a think tank. Here are areas i have in mind.

* Geopolitics Desk
* Counterterrorism Desk
* Economics Desk
* Defense & Military Desk
* Political Intelligence

Now, i know this isn't a new idea. We've tried and failed before. But we've also learned. Im giving my resolute commitment to all who come forward to man these desks. From now on our work shall be properly published as it should have a long time ago.

There will be 1X incharge of each desk with analysts attached to help with R&D. Every desk will run projects.

We got sections carved up, so no structural change required.

PROJECTS:

Syria Conflict
Yemen Conflict
Afghanistan Conflict
SCO Updates / Pakistan Foreign Relations
Nuclear Suppliers Group Project
Arms Imports/Exports to/from Pakistan
Pakistan Economy / Food / Water Security
Counterterrorism inc Ethnofascist terror
Brexit, EU Research Project
CPEC/BRI Project
Kashmir Project


Ideas?

What would this project entail? My guess is periodical opinion pieces in the respective sections (desks) with higher content quality including reference to sources?

No opinion pieces. I want to collect open source intelligence and later use that database to build PDF papers.

For instance if you're working on our Syria Desk, you'll look for daily updates on the ongoing conflict and your job will be to post excerpts of actionable information on the board with a source.

Slowly the information grid will build up and users will see a clear picture of the conflict or a subject matter.

This is a typical example of a "Project" .

I am a published author (of scientific research papers). If you need assistance in publishing, stream lining, producing and standardizing journals, I can offer my services.

If you want to publish your findings of this forum, perhaps a quarterly journal (online + hard copy) would do you good.

Magazine is not possible at this point.

It is donkey work I know. have done it over the years for my own research. Can do for other people's work too, here. But you will get international standard language and presentation.
