Prof. Dr. Muhammad Zaman is a sociologist at the Department of Sociology, Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad. He earned his PhD from the University of Leipzig.

His research spans over childhood, youth, marriage and family, criminology and road safety in Pakistan. Owing to his road safety research, he more recently started working on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Since CPEC has major projects on road infrastructure, rail links and port connectivity in Pakistan (along with energy, education and health) and linkage with the region, Professor Zaman’s research focuses on the safety and security of a common road users and driving behavior, road crashes and policies related to the road designing. Beside this, he is a commentator on social issues at various TV channels in Pakistan and abroad. Professor Zaman contributes opinion articles in Urdu weekly in the Daily 92 Newspaper.
