We are pleased to announce that Parvais Jabbar was awarded an Honorary Degree at Middlesex University

Speaking at the graduation ceremony on 11th July 2016, Parvais said,

I am extremely honoured to have been recognised by Middlesex University in this way. It is a privilege to accept this award…I have had the pleasure to collaborate with many academics, including Professor William Schabas, looking at ways in which international human rights and law can be used to restrict the scope and application of the death penalty around the world.
