Mauricio Lazala

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre
Deputy Director
Since 1996, I have worked for the Labour Education Foundation (LEF) in Pakistan. Our work is focussed on the objective of building a democratic labour movement in Pakistan. I am working as Director of the Foundation since 2001.
I work closely in Pakistan with trade unions, factory workers, informal sector workers’ groups, labour rights organisations, women rights organisations, child rights organisations, gender equality activists, to take the voice and struggle of workers into the development of collective actions at national, regional and international level with the aim of reducing inequality and achieving long term positive change in the lives of workers.
Through my work with affiliated trade unions in Pakistan and through national, regional and international education programmes I work closely with GUFs and other organisations. I am engaged in monitoring international policy developments and its effects at national level by participating in different networks at regional and global level such as; International Federation of Workers’ Education Associations (IFWEA), South Asia Alliance for Poverty Eradication (SAAPE), Global Labour Institute (GLI), Asia Europe Peoples’ Forum, Asian Network for the Rights of Occupational and Environmental Victims (ANROEV) and Clean Cloth Campaign (CCC). I am also member of the Executive Committee of IFWEA.
