Islamabad: To strengthen the protection, promotion and enforcement of human rights, the Balochistan government, with the support of Huqooq-e-Pakistan project (HeP), will develop its first human rights policy. The policy will be developed after consultation with all stakeholders. The policy will also build upon legislative and policy initiatives already undertaken by the Balochistan government and expand the scope and scale of future endeavours.

Balochistan will have its human rights policy through a province-led process. To be formulated under the guidance of the Social Welfare and Human Rights Department, this policy is aimed at mainstreaming human rights standards throughout the administrative and government structures at the provincial level,” said Barrister Salman Afridi, HeP’s Policy Expert.

Balochistan Governor Amanullah Khan Yasinzai welcomed the commencement of activities in the province by the European Union funded Promotion of Human Rights in Pakistan (Huqooq-e-Pakistan) project. The governor was responding to a briefing by a HeP delegation led by Senior Key Expert Ali Dayan Hasan. Senior HeP Policy Expert Barrister Salman Afridi, Training Expert Usama Nasim and HeP Balochistan Coordinator Sultan Mohammad also briefed the Governor on project interventions planned for the province under the EU’s flagship human rights project.

The HeP is a European Union (EU) funded programme with the objective of supporting the continued efforts of the government of Pakistan for the promotion of human rights. The purpose of the programme is to strengthen the institutional and policy framework at the federal and the provincial level for the promotion and protection of human rights.

The project will undertake several other initiatives in Balochistan to strengthen human rights protection mechanisms. Explaining a few initiatives, senior key expert HeP programme Ali Dayan Hasan said that the project is supporting deployment of young experts from the province in Social Welfare and Human Rights Department to bridge human-resource gaps in successfully carrying out its mandate.

“Besides that, several trainings will be organised under this initiative on Pakistan’s international human rights obligations, human rights documentation, data collection and enhancement of IT skills,” said Hasan, adding that the project will also be working on developing human rights knowledge base of the Balochistan HR related departments through the provision of e-journals, e-databases and publications.

He said that another major activity will be the formulation of guidelines for cooperation and collaboration between provincial Human Rights Departments and the Federal Ministry of Human Rights

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
