As seen on the conference website, the Aims and Objectives are:
"to highlight the importance of Karachi and all facets of its urban existence through a scholarly exercise, for understanding the role that it has assumed as a regional hub. Karachi’s resume will grow with its fast pace of development in the backdrop of globalisation and regionalisation, and the related geo-political upheavals that are visibly developing in this part of the world.
A secondary objective of the conference is to bring together local and international academic institutions, scholars, and development and social activists who have worked on Karachi, to engage with each other and with other like-minded local individuals for future academic endeavors, especially those relevant to the city. The holding of the conference and the publication of its outcomes will serve as a foundation template for prospective research and scholarly activity on Karachi."
