The formation and implementation of policies are different issues in theoretical and practical terms. Implementation is more complicated, being concerned with political, financial, administrative and socio‐economic issues. It requires motivation, proper lobbying, and technical, professional and administrative support. A profession can directly and indirectly be a driving force for the implementation of policies. LIS in Pakistan lacks influence, recognition and the coordination to play such a role. It can be developed through socialisation, playing a broader part, developing more commitments with the profession and providing practical support to authorised agencies for policy implementation.
