In 2012 I created Thinkers' Corner. It was meant as an initiative within the bureaucracy of Pakistan to mobilise civil servants to debate existing incentive and selection systems and suggest potential reforms to the government. The idea was to start the process of an incremental change within civil services and lay the foundation for better public service delivery. The methodology adopted by the forum was to debate on a specific issue for a month. The team of Thinker's Corner would then conclude the debate and issue a report which was to be circulated among all its members, the National Commission for Government Reforms (NCGR) and various Civil Service Associations as well. Unfortunately, it failed to mobilize enough civil servants.
