Introduction NCJP

National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP) is a human rights body, established by the Pakistan Catholic Bishops’ Conference in 1985. As an advocacy organization the Commission focuses human rights of the marginalized, especially religious minorities, women, children and labour in Pakistan, which involves interventions regarding awareness, opinion building about law and policy reforms. NCJP carries out its activities through seven regional offices in Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Multan, Hyderabad, Karachi and Quetta and a National office at Lahore. For its activities in the field NCJP relies on a cadre of 500+ human rights activists (volunteers) belonging to different religions, cultures and administrative regions of Pakistan. NCJP received an International Human Rights Award by the Tji-Hak-Soon (Tulip) Foundation of South Korea in 2001, for its services in promotion of human rights. In 2016, Pax Christy International (Geneva) conferred NCJP with Peace Award 2016 for its efforts in the field of Human Rights particularly the rights of minorities.
