About People’s SAARC

People’s SAARC (PSAARC) is an initiative of several peoples movements, trade unions, academics, progressive individuals and NGOs who, recognising the limitations and mandate of the SAARC process, initiated a Peoples SAARC process in 2007 in New Delhi. I’m attaching a few documents for your perusal.

The basic idea of PSAARC is for people’s movements/organisations/progressive people to come together to both recognise our common South Asian identity/heritage/challenges and influence our national governments as well as the SAARC mechanism to address the concerns of ordinary South Asians such as livelihood, migration, environmental degradation and common challenges such as flooding, drought etc, militarization and shrinking space for democracy, human rights violations.
