Saferworld Pakistan programme is relatively new; it aims to work on improving community cohesion, inclusive justice and economic development. Working in consortium with Oxfam, over the next 5 years Saferworld will seek to promote a justice system in Pakistan that is accessible, inclusive, transparent and accountable.

 

Overall, our engagement in Pakistan combines project implementation at the community level, dialogue, capacity building, policy research, networking and advocacy, and working with institutions and civil society at sub-national/provincial, national, regional and international levels.
