38] – On Wed., Jul. 18 from 3 to 4:30 PM, the question is Will Pakistan's Youth be a Boom or Bust for its Democracy?  This event is hosted by the United States Institute of Peace, 2301 Constitution Ave. NW, WDC 20037.  Get tickets at www.usip.org. With over 44 percent of new voters between the ages of 18 and 35, Pakistan’s youth will play an important role in the upcoming elections and influence the future of the country’s democracy. To harness the power of Pakistan’s youth, a recent UNDP Human Development Report argues for a national focus on youth empowerment through education, employment, and meaningful engagement. Failing to do so could lead to youth anger and dissent, spelling disaster for the future of Pakistan.
