Seminar on Exploring Disability Rights Paradigm in India at Indian Law Institute, Delhi on 28th September:
Today, over one billion people in the world have a disability and as per Census 2011, approximately 2.68 crore citizens are ‘disabled’ in India. In spite of increasing rates of disability, we continue to treat persons with disability as an invisible group. This seminar attempts to stir up conversations about promotion of full realization of economic, social and cultural rights of persons with disability.
Persons with disability face difficulties in the most ordinary aspirations such as accessing public spaces and common properties such public washrooms; to enter in a school or classroom; to access information; going out to worship; owning properties and so on. This normally results in a sense of isolation, dependency and pervasive low self-esteem. The international community recognized these diverse attitudinal and environmental barriers and formulated the United Nations Convention for Rights of Persons with Disability.
The Indian Law Institute is a Deemed University and socio-legal research institute, founded in 1956. Established in New Delhi, primarily with the objective of promoting and conducting legal research, education and training.
