Final Report

University of Michigan Pakistan Conference 2013

On Friday 5 April 2013, the University of Michigan’s Center for South Asian Studies and Pakistani Students’ Association co-hosted a Pakistan Conference. The speakers included emerging and established scholars, a journalist, and a human rights lawyer. The discussion this year was based on a theme of human rights in Pakistan, organized into three panels: the politics of human rights, poverty as a human rights concern and international law and the cost of drone warfare. The discussion was drawn to a close by the eminent Pakistan scholar, Professor Ayesha Jalal. The conference was well-attended, with over 100 people (students, faculty, and community members) attending each of the panels.
