Pamir has always been a remote and abandoned region of Upper Asia. Today, however, the people face rapid and shocking upheaval due to the terrorist threat, the Taliban irruption, Chinese expansion, and external interference from Pakistan in Afghanistan. This reinforces the need for a transnational vision. Therefore, the Pamir Institute is a think tank embracing all the Pamirs of Afghanistan, China, Pakistan and Tajikistan. The Pamir Institute does not advertise any commercial establishment. The Pamir Institute is not part of any government propaganda or political party.
