A conference titled Human Rights Reforms in Sindh, GSP+ and Beyond was organized by the Government of Sindh’s Human Rights Department with administrative support provided by The Knowledge Forum on May 30, 2022. The conference was aimed at highlighting the achievements, especially regarding the protection and promotion of human rights by the provincial government and other stakeholders, and also to frame strategies to ensure compliance with Pakistan’s commitment toward human rights, particularly with regard to the Generalised Scheme Preference (GSP)—the European Union’s trade incentive scheme—and the United Nation’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR). The conference was a forum to further informed discussions to devise strategies and action points to prioritise and implement an agenda of reforms by creating a culture of stakeholders’ coordination, harmony and team spirit. The conference was graced by dignitaries including the minister of labour and human resource Mr Saeed Ghani, the EU Delegation’s Charge d’ Affairs Mr Thomas Seiler, and stakeholders including lawmakers, bureaucrats, legal experts, members of the civil society, employers and businesses, trade unionists, social workers and activists rallying for human rights, representatives of provincial police, and political workers, among others.
