Director’s Message

Law, human rights and Justice are fundamental institutions of the basic structure of society, therefore it is imperative that every institution of high-learning has a dedicated team which actively researches in the field of law, justice and particularly human rights. The Ziauddin Center for Human Rights (ZCHR) carries out cutting-edge research in Human Rights, International Law, Labor Laws, Refugee Law and Environmental Law and is integral to the academic missions of Ziauddin Law.

The team explores and seeks answers to legal questions such as evolving notion of state sovereignty, land grabbing in underdeveloped countries, Pakistan’s commitment to International Human Rights treaties, and progress in civil and political rights in Pakistan. The team also engages in active advocacy.
