We are delighted to invite you to attend a special online event on human rights, the universal right to self-determination and how they both relate to Sikhs in Punjab.

This event will be broadcast through social media channels.

2) Jatinder Singh Grewal, Director of International Policy at Sikhs for Justice.
3) Punjab Referendum commissioners, which includes Paul Jacob, a leading national figure in referendums and president of Citizens in Charge Foundation, Bruno Kaufmann, a journalist who has 30 years of experience in covering referendums and Professor Matt Qvortrup, a qualified lawyer and Professor of Political Science at Coventry University.
