This project required RSIL to provide training to 100 students, lawyers, prosecutors and judges in the area of human rights and counter-terrorism legislation in 10 trainings spread over the duration of the project. In addition, the project also required us to develop two detailed reports on human rights and Pakistan’s legislative landscape and recommendations for improving the anti-terrorism court trial procedure in Pakistan. The overall objective was to improve the standards of due process and fair trial in the Anti-Terrorism Courts in Pakistan.
