While addressing the book launching ceremony, chief guest Barrister Zafarullah Khan said that a weak legal system and a lack of proper rule of law has contributed towards non-development of various sectors in Pakistan including the economy.

Author of the book Sharafat A. Chaudhry, an aluminous of the Iqra University, also secured gold medals in MS Development Studies and MPhil in International Development.

Two points in the book have been established, firstly, there is a strong relationship between law and development, adding even with all of its different manifestations and meanings, development is almost impossible without the intervention of law.

Secondly, that the measurement of a society’s development is just as possible through the use of indicators relating to law as it is by using the social indicators (education, health, housing, water & sanitation and poverty) employed by the United Nations Development Program’s (UNDP) in Human Development Report.

Based on Amertya Sen’s concept of ‘freedom from tyranny’, the author suggested that measurement of human development in a society may also be possible from the perspective of law; by developing indices like Rule of Law, Access to Justice, Tolerance in Society and Type of Litigation (disputes) that are prevalent in a society. This may very well become an addition to the Human Development Index in the future.
