The Future of Pakistan Conference 2016 London

On October 28-30, 2016, Pakistanis from around the world gathered in London for the Future of Pakistan Conference hosted by SAATH Forum.

The discussions at this deliberative conference focused on how the pluralist and secular narrative in Pakistan can be strengthened. Can individuals currently spread over many political parties, NGOs and media houses agree to collaborate for greater goals setting aside individual interests and differences? How can we ensure greater support for pluralist ideas in Pakistan given the array of forces opposed to it? Is there a scope for such politics and how can it be mainstreamed especially in Pakistan’s youth? These and many other questions were the topics of the day, and helped shape the Declaration of the attendees, as read by Rashed Rahman.
