Nov 22, 2014-
People’s Saarc Regional Convergence, which has brought together civil society leaders from the Saarc region to discuss pertinent issues in the region, kicked off in the Capital on Saturday. The three day event with the slogan “People’s movement uniting South Asia for deepening democracy, social justice and peace” includes a consortium of South Asian civil society and professional organisations that will endorse a declaration as a common regional document on behalf of the entire civil society of South Asia.
Around 70 thematic programmes on different regional issues are at discussion, including alternative regionalism, case and professional based discrimination, child rights, democracy governance and human rights, development rights, climate change, and labour rights. According to the organisers, the document will be forwarded to the Saarc Secretariat ahead of the summit.
