In Pakistan, and especially in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, there is a paucity of research on schools, teacher education institutions, and higher education. In 2005, Pakistan and Norway entered into an agreement to start a multi-sector �Institutions Cooperation Programme�, to provide an opportunity to public and private sector teacher education institutions in Pakistan to collaborate with Norway for improvement of education in Pakistan. Subsequently, Oslo University College, Norway, entered into a partnership with the Institute of Education and Research�Peshawar University (IER�PU) and the Aga Khan University�Institute for Educational Development (AKU�IED) to develop institutional capacity. Major objectives of the initiative were to strengthen the planning and implementation of educational programmes offered in order to improve the quality of education. This collaborative project was funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Pakistan under the auspices of the Planning Commission, Islamabad.
