Round table meeting on human rights in Pakistan

Over a year into the office of Prime Minister and previous cricket star Imran Khan, it is time to take a look at the human rights situation in Pakistan and how it has developed over the last year(s).

Date: Wednesday 30th of October, 2019

Time: 14:00-15:30

Place: Grensen 3 (Amnesty International Norway's office)

What is the status of the right to expression, association, assembly and freedom of religion or belief? What are the challenges faced by human rights defenders and what are their resistance strategies? What opportunities are there to work together to improve the human rights situation?

These questions will be topic for discussion when the Norwegian Human Rights Fund invites civil society actors to an informal round table conversation with Zulfiqar Shah from Pakistan.
