Taimur Kamal

HRD & Coordinator
Pakhtunkhwa Civil Society Network (PCSN)

Taimur Kamal is the coordinator of Pakhtunkhwa Civil Society Network (PCSN). PCSN was set up in 2010 and works for the rights of deprived and underprivileged communities. He is also a member of the advisory board of TransAction Pakistan.

Pakistan’s record of impunity has emboldened hostile actors and fostered an increasingly violent climate for HRDs, who face high risks including killing, arbitrary arrest and detention, abduction and kidnapping, surveillance, threats and judicial harassment. The government of Pakistan has made no real effort to support or protect their work and instead regularly votes against UN resolutions aimed at providing better protection for HRDs.
