The book examines the extensive nature of human rights violations in Pakistan; the scandal involving UNHCR's (the United Nations' Refugee Agency's) management and processing policies and practices relating to Pakistani Christian and 'Othered' asylum seekers in Thailand and the context in which Pakistan's educational policy has contributed to the human rights crisis. The controversial role of edu-businesses/consultancies and US AID and UK Department for International Development (DFID) educational aid initiatives are also considered. The intent of the book is to trigger greater and more fervent discussions about the above concerns and the human rights crisis engulfing Pakistan and the impact of state policies and practices on 'Othered' communities living in Pakistan as well as those seeking asylum elsewhere.
