NUST CIPS and HSF jointly convened a roundtable titled, “Legal and Socio-cultural Discourse on Human Migration” at NUST Islamabad campus on July 3, 2019. The roundtable was the first of a series of three roundtable conferences. Their overarching aim is to produce a blueprint or policy framework that contributes towards devising Pakistan’s migration management strategies. Mr Davide Terzi, Chief of Mission, International Organization for Migration (IOM), Pakistan, graced the occasion with his presence.
The roundtable brought together speakers with expertise in international and national law, academic backgrounds in migration studies and, in particular, practitioners dealing with refugees in Pakistan. They emphasised on the need to arrive at more pragmatic and implementable steps concerning the various manifestations of human migrants.
