Nimrah Zubair, Pakistan
Born and bred in a country known for a chequered history of social and political mayhem, the human rights situation has always been glanced with suspicion. The social development sector therefore, always held appeal for me. My association with Leadership for Environment And Development (LEAD), and later with UNDP Pakistan, raised my quest for getting formally trained in Human Rights and Democratization.
I feel privileged to be part of the first ever cohort of students from Asia-Pacific region to study the subject, in the midst of an extremely inspirational faculty. Diversified research engagements , especially in the areas of child rights, trafficking and migration, and to be a part of global movement on human rights will continue to be important motivational factors in my life.
