This webinar is being organized by The Knowledge Forum in collaboration with Democracy Reporting International on the theme of EU’s GSP+ Scheme: Pakistan’s Status of Engagement and Compliance.

Pakistan is one of the major beneficiary countries of the EU’s GSP+ Status granted in January 2014 for a period of ten years. As the status nears its term in 2023, the country is required to renegotiate with the EU for transition/continuation of the scheme under a modernised regulation.

The webinar is aimed at generating an informed discussion on the effectiveness of the scheme in terms of fostering development, improvement in compliance of the labour and human rights standards and in achieving benefits for the marginalised segments of the society, which is the key objective of the GSP+ Scheme.
