Criminal Justice Reform in Pakistan: A Case Study
October 28, 2016
Osama Siddique, IGLP Faculty and Henry J. Steiner Visiting Professor in Human Rights at Harvard Law School
October 28, 2016 from 12pm – 1pm in Hauser Hall 102 Harvard Law School
The IGLP co-sponsored a lunchtime discussion with Osama Siddique, IGLP Faculty and Henry J. Steiner Visiting Professor in Human Rights on the human rights implications of criminal justice system reform in Pakistan. In most developing countries, criminal justice reform is driven by internationally-funded efforts, which often cut out critical local actors. In Pakistan, members of the justice sector are engaged in complex and meaningful dialogue that has influenced the process and content of criminal justice reform to more sustainable effect. Osama examined Pakistan’s cutting-edge effort and considered what lessons can be drawn from it for other countries. The event was organized by the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School.
