International Conference on Right to Equality 2.0: Contemporary Challenges

About the Conference

The Institute of Law, Nirma University is organising the second edition of the International Conference on Right to Equality: Contemporary Challenges on March 15 and 16, 2024 in a hybrid mode at Institute of Law, Nirma University, Ahmedabad. The concept of rights represents respect for human life and its needs–biological, individual, social, political and civil. Right to Equality is one of the basic interests of the social human recognising the equal dignity and liberty of all. The basic right of humans to equal treatment has arisen out of centuries of continued existence in social categories and hierarchies that have ensured the dominion of the dominant over the other. Hence, modern constitutions, by recognising right to equality, have been pursuing a transformative goal of achieving greater dignity for all. The formal promise and enforcement of equality through constitutional provisions might not always be enough. We need to constantly revisit our rules and processes of interaction so that they may remain in consonance with the fundamental rights. This conference is aimed to initiate new discourses and continue the existing conversations on the furtherance of right to equality, specially in the light of the contemporary developments across jurisdictions.
