    Mr. Habib serves as a senior supervisory officer in the law-enforcement infrastructure of Pakistan. In that capacity, he is involved in crime-containment, threat assessment and risk analysis, criminal investigations and personnel management. More recently, he commanded the biggest police operation in the history of Punjab police against criminals in the sanctuaries of River Indus. He liaises with his peers in other national and international law enforcement agencies and engages in policy analysis on the subject of law-enforcement. Mr. Habib has also served the United Nations for more than five years in various conflict zones: Kosovo (UNMIK), Rwanda (ICTR), and Liberia (UNMIL). Mr. Habib holds the degree of Master of Science in Criminal Justice Policy from the London School of Economics, Advance Diplomas in Crisis Management from the Defense College of Sweden and Leicester University, UK, and an MBBS from the Khyber Medical University. He has been awarded the highest civil award, Tamgha-e-Imtiaz, for his public services. During his Humphrey Fellowship year, he seeks both theoretical study and practical training in regard to international human rights law and the mechanisms for its implementation. He wants to focus on human rights issues in the context of law-enforcement and to interact with both scholars and practitioners. Upon his return to Pakistan, he hopes both to improve the efficacy of police in Pakistan through introduction of modern technologies and to enhance the culture of respect for human rights in the law-enforcing agencies.
