Call for Papers @ International Journal of Discrimination and the Law Editors Nicole Busby and Grace James

Submissions Deadline: 31 October 2020
Manuscripts will be considered as they are received Martha Fineman’s vulnerability theory is premised on an understanding of the human condition as one of universal and constant vulnerability. As human beings, our embodied state leaves us susceptible to
continuous change in our well-being and our embeddedness in social institutions and arrangements and the nature and operation of those institutions enable us, to varying degrees, to build and exercise resilience. Fineman’s notion of the universal body, ‘understood as prior to the social or political, as independent of existing or imagined ethical, or moral social arrangements’1 provides a useful starting point for thinking about the effects of and responses to the Covid-19 pandemic across different states and
within different legal contexts.

The editors of this special issue are interested in submissions which interrogate how states have historically organised their social welfare responses to vulnerability and how those social arrangements have mitigated or exacerbated the effects of the pandemic. Such insights may provide commentaries on how governmental responses should be devised and supported using the lessons learned. Rather than framing these interrogations and responses by way of a traditional non-discrimination approach which distinguishes between individuals and groups on the grounds of their perceived specific vulnerabilities, analyses should start from the perspective of our shared universal vulnerability as embodied beings. In this way we seek to explore how the corporeal manifestations of the pandemic are reflected, deflected and reproduced in and by the state in its various guises and within different contexts by way of pre-existing institutions, relationships and the arrangements that flow from them and to identify the route out of this that a vulnerability perspective offers.

Contributions are welcome which explore experiences of the pandemic within a single state, geographical region or through a comparative approach and which consider the impact of the pandemic on one area of law and/or policy (for example, family law, social security law, medical law, economic law, employment law, etc.) or across legal and policy frameworks more generally.

Relevant questions for consideration include:
 How has the state’s historical conceptions of vulnerability impacted on its responses to the current pandemic?
 Has the focus on ‘particularised bodies’ limited state responses to Covid-19?
 What has the pandemic revealed about the current construction of social relationships and institutions and how might a vulnerability approach be used in response?

 What do state responses to Covid-19 tell us about the current construction of the human body
in legal and policy frameworks?
 What does the pandemic tell us about the role of legal subjectivity in constructing the
relationships and institutions that order society for everyone?
 What has the pandemic exposed regarding who bears the burdens for the social reproduction of
society and its institutions and how might this be impacted in future?
 What might the crisis mean for reimagining the ‘responsive state’?

How to Submit
Contributions of between 8,000-10,00 words (including references) are welcome. Submissions should comply with the guidance available here: and will be subject to full peer review. Submit your manuscript online by 31st October 2020 at:

IPEM Law Academy Ghaziabad is organizing a National Seminar on “Centre-State Relations under Indian Constitution” 28th March, 2020 (Saturday) at its Campus. We, at IPEM Law Academy, believe in promoting learning and enriching the academic pursuits of our Students. Keeping this in mind, we invite distinguished academicians at regular intervals to share their insights through Workshops/Seminars/Faculty Development Programs/Guest Lectures etc from time to time.

India adopted a Federal Constitution where the powers have been divided into the Centre and States which have been defined clearly under the Constitution. The Union Government has a large sphere of action and plays a dominant role as compared to the States. The Emergency provision provide a way of transforming the normal Federal fabric into an almost Unitary system, so as to meet national exigencies effectively. In certain circumstances the Union becomes competent to legislate even in the exclusive field of State. The process of amending the Constitution for that matter is not very rigid. There have been matters of dispute in the Courts of Law relating to relationship between Centre and States especially regarding of Legislatives, Administration and Financial powers.

About The Conference

The upcoming National Conference on Human Rights and Gender Justice with the Legal Aid Awards will reflect and take stock of how far India has come as a county since the promulgation of the democratic Constitution in1950. It will envision an India where human rights are protected, respected and fulfilled; Gender Justice is observed and Legal Aid is available to all. The Conference will bring various stakeholders and youth to take stock and envision this future together; and to explore how to support and realize the opportunities presented by the Youth Dividend through Sustainable Development Goals. 2019 marks the 71stAnniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) adopted on 10th December 1948, the historic document set the fundamental rights that would be protected internationally, recognizing human rights as the foundation for freedom, justice and peace everywhere.


Through this Conference, we aim to highlight the gap created between genders and how this gap in many ways violates the Human Rights, as a result of which there comes difficulties in providing Legal Aid. This National conference on Human Rights and Gender Justice is organized with an aim to bring together academicians, students, human rights activists and other intellectuals on one platform to discuss the various issues concerning human rights and to discuss the measures to curb such issues.

Knowledge Steez has been actively organizing social awareness and legal aid workshops throughout the country and this conference, which will be the 4th edition to it, will aim at providing the participants with an option to join us in our campaigns and hence the conference will not merely be limited to on table discussions, rather it will provide various options to implement the discussions on field.


Theme of the Conference


Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe or how you choose to live your life. They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted – for example if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security. But sadly due to the increasing number of Gender Inequality, and since these basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence, there arises another problem of providing legal aid to everyone. These values are defined and protected by law. This conference aims to bring together innovative academics and industrial experts in these fields to a common forum and also envision to deliberate on feasible approaches to the above mentioned facets for better Development and Implementation of future Laws and policies for the stakeholders.

Call for Papers: National Seminar on Demonetization and Digitisation of Indian Economy @ NEHU, Shillong [Nov 27-28]: Submit by Oct 10.

About the Seminar 

A sensational application of demonetization in India as on 8th November, 2016, when Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi in his address to the nation, shook the country by announcing the withdrawal of ₹500 and ₹1000 currency notes as legal tender w.e.f 9th November, 2016. The event has been viewed as a master stroke against black money which according to an estimate was in between 10-40% of national GDP.

Until this, the Government’s struggle against black money in the form of various measures did not yield any tangible results. Besides elimination of black money from the economy, the other objectives of this announcement as claimed include curbing corruption, counterfeiting terror funding and a push towards digital economy.

However, the currency in circulation which was previously at ₹17.52 lakh crore fell to a level of ₹2.81 lakh crore after demonetization reportedly created a mess in the country for more time since 68% of the transactions in the economy were on cash basis.

Many critics claim argue that demonetization is not the solution to black money as it will only catch the dumb goats and the black sheep will jump the fence by any means. With regard to reduction of inflationary pressure, many economists argue that black money is anti-inflationary in nature as its velocity of circulation is much lower than the white money.

Moreover, transition to a digital economy is a challenging task as it requires strengthening of banking industry, improvement of basic infrastructure, change in consumer behaviour, stepping up of financial literacy, etc.

Many opine that digitization of cash transactions cannot substitute cash. Now the question arises: Does demonetization magically transform India into a cashless pioneer and create a blueprint for other countries? The benefits as claimed by the Government require wide range of debate and discussion, not only at different hierarchical levels in the government but also amongst the members of the civil society including academicians, researchers, policy makers, practitioners and industrialists.

In this backdrop, the Department of Commerce, North-Eastern Hill University, Shillong is organising a National Seminar on the theme “Demonetization and its impact on Indian Economy” on November 27-28, 2017 in order to provide a platform for debate and discussion.

Three Days National Seminar on One Hundred Years after Champaran and the Making of the Indian Nation jointly hosted by the Department of History, Sikkim University, Gangtok and Omeo Kumar Das Institute of Social Change and Development, Guwahati .


While it will be erroneous to hold that India’s struggle for freedom began with Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s arrival from South Africa (on January 4, 1915), it will be equally wrong to treat the struggle as one continuous movement since the Battle of Plassey in 1757. The science of history, indeed, teaches us to look for moments of ruptures in the course of a long movement and locate their significance. History, then, is not to be seen as a linear course. The ruptures then are metaphors that lend to a study of the past from the concerns of the present. ‘All history’ as Benedito Croce held, ‘is contemporary history.’ The contemporary here is not to mean the history and events of the recent past. As Croce put it, History lives only, as a present interest and pursuit, in the mind of the historian when he criticizes and interprets documents, and by so doing  re-lives for himself the states of mind into which he enquires. The importance of Champaran in the history of our nation, in the words of Babu Rajendra Prasad, who cut his teeth, as a freedom fighter, therein Champaran was that ‘we saw in Champaran on a smaller scale Gandhiji’s satyagraha which he later organized through the lengthand breadth of the country.’
The seminar will consider following themes:
•Testimonies as a tool in campaigns
•Public Reasoning and Reciprocity and the Law of the People: The Gandhian
•Just and Unjust Laws: From A Theory of Justice to The Idea of Justice
• The relevance of Satyagraha: Gandhi in his own times to Our own times
• Justice: Social, Economic and Political and the Constitutional scheme
•Law and Justice: Can the two reconcile
•Satyagraha and its relevance in the post-colonial era
•The neo-liberal state and Gandhian responses
•Gandhi’s Idea of Journalism and the State of the Media
•Gandhism after Gandhi: Gandhi as an apostle, a Saint or a Metaphysical Rebel
The themes mentioned above are only indicative and certainly not exhaustive. The seminar will seek to gather historians and other social scientists, jurists as well as journalists so as to interrogate the past from the concerns of the present and attempt to draw a roadmap to strengthen the democratic edifice and the constitutional scheme further.
Seminar Calendar

Scholars whose abstracts are accepted will be intimated by e mail latest by October 8, 2017

In spite of one’s best efforts to avoid them, disputes cannot be avoided altogether in a contract. In order to complete projects without cost or time overrun, suitable mechanism should be in place to resolve disputes as and when they arise.

The amended Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 has raised much hope which promises to be effective tool for speedy and cost effective dispute resolution besides facilitating implementation of foreign awards. This augurs well for raising the level of ease of doing business in the country thus paving way for attracting more Foreign Direct Investments.

India, where numbers of projects by MNC’s are going on, has the potential of becoming the hub of International Arbitration. The hurdles if any in this context have to be indentified and removed. The Conference is organized to address these problems, besides updating knowledge on the subject and hone the skills of practising and aspiring Arbitrators.

The sub themes to be covered include but not limited to:

1. Present status of laws related to Arbitration in India
2. An in depth analysis of Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (as amended in 2015)
3. Role of Arbitration in promoting ease of doing business in India
4. Contribution of Arbitration to “Make in India” concept through PPP route
International Arbitration – present status, opportunities and challenges
5. Developing India as hub of International Arbitration
6. Promoting Institutional Arbitration in India

Justice Sunanda Bhandari Forum for Natural Resources Law at the WB National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata is going to organize the National Seminar on Legal Aspects of Animal Welfare.

Date: 9th – 10th September, 2016
Venue: The WB National University of Juridical Sciences, 12, LB Block, Sec III, Salt Lake, Kolkata

About the Conference:
Human society is faced with the challenge to redefine our understanding of development so that our recognition and protection of the rights of animals is as much an indicator of our level of progress as our recognition and protection of the rights of human beings.

Evolution teaches mankind to accept the commonalities between human and non-humans. Science has proved that animals can no longer be assumed as mere commodities for the benefit of humans. Animals may not be able to express their feelings and interest or claim their rights from us in a similar language as we humans do; nonetheless their existence is beyond question. Animals seek to protect their own lives, preserve their freedom, and avoid what caused them pain according to their own priorities.

As individuals, animals possess and express distinguishing characteristics, however vastly their lives may differ from us; they are in many ways akin to humans. The exploitation of animals by human beings is as deeply entrenched in human culture in the 21st century as the exploitation of our fellow human beings was in the last centuries. The assumption that animals cannot have rights because we still have not given them is an absurd radical belief which ought to change.

Themes of the Conference:

1. Animals in customs, traditions and religions
2. Do animals have rights beyond species? Are they to be considered / treated as individuals entitled to life and liberty – and if yes, how do we differentiate between species?
3. Are animals to be addressed mostly in context of perceived utility to humans, from food to companion animals? (Economy-agriculture, dairy, entertainment industry, circus, racing and hunting, sports, etc., transportation of livestock, slaughter houses)
4. Animals in Cages and Captivity – Zoo Animals, Companion Animals
Animals in drugs and cosmetics experiments etc.
5. Animals as property – ownership and liability (Jurisprudential aspect – companion and stray animals)
6. Biodiversity and the right of species as whole to survive and perpetuate. [Poaching and habitat, genetic modification]
7. Is there a need to have separate conventions to protect animal rights? [Comparative statutory laws / policies on Animal welfare and protection (emerging issues)]
8. Man and Animal Conflict (lack of prey, animal corridor, land enclosures, etc.)
9. Application of sustainable development principles on animals, land enclosures and animal / wildlife protection.

Call for Papers:
Those who are interested in presenting a paper on any of the above themes must send an Abstract of 300 words along with a brief biographical note (not more than 300 words). The full length paper should be between 5,000 – 7,000 words.

If the full length paper is not submitted before the last date, authors will not be allowed to present the paper in the Conference. Submission of the full paper would be presumed as unconditional consent of the author(s) for a possible publication by the organizers.

A registration fee of Rs. 700/- shall be charged to the participants. All the participants must register their name by email communication to any one of the student co-ordinators by 31st August, 2016. Due to the financial constraints, organizers are not in a position to provide any support regarding transportation or accommodation of participants.

National Seminar on Revitalising the Rural: Rethinking Rural and Agricultural Policies at
Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla and Network for Rural and Agrarian Studies (27-29 September, 2016)

Concept Note

At a time of intense and expedited globalisation of India’s economy and the on-going multiple forms of distress in rural India, there is an urgent need to engage with these conditions and formulate new policies. While some attention has been paid to the on-going rural distress, manifested primarily in suicides by agriculturists, rural India is also experiencing a series of contradictions. These include the growth of small pockets of commercially successful agricultural belts as against vast impoverished regions.  The Green Revolution has increased productivity of cereals but it has taken its toll in terms of loss of agricultural bio-diversity, erosion of natural resources especially the soil, and chemicalisation of food which has only further endangered the food security of the people.  As capital and market have expanded to mark the rural economy, there is the spread of ‘welfare governmentality’ in the form of the rural employment guarantee programme and the rights to food and basic education. The expanding real estate industry and extractive industries, while creating a few crorepatis, are altering the rural landscape and pushing vast numbers of the population into conditions of destitution. Several issues such as that of land access, use, rights (especially among Dalits, Adivasis and women) and the spread of destructive and unsustainable forms of land use need attention. Global warming and climate change are impacting agricultural productivity and practices and the search for resilient and sustainable forms of natural resource management and agricultural models must be expedited.

Since existing policies and non-policy programmes seem to benefit large and capital-based agriculture, policies that focus on, and cater to, the needs of the majority, the small and marginal agriculturists must be considered seriously. Policy decisions must be made democratic and transparent without vested commercial/financial interests holding sway. There is an urgent need to promote new production, marketing, distributing, and administrative structures that can enable cultivators and rural set-ups to be economically viable.

Attendant with the retrogression of agriculture have been a range of policies and programmes that have increasingly privatised public institutions such education and health. Expenditures on these alone account for growing indebtedness and for people to fall into poverty.  Reclaiming these institutions as effective, functioning and public institutions will address a range of problems and enhance the individual and household/family capabilities of a large proportion of rural people.

In seeking to integrate the rural and agricultural, the approach is to address not only economic but also social and institutional issues that impact everyday life in rural India. Issues such as food security, seed sovereignty, income generation, and ecological sustainability require attention. A range of new technologies and bio-technologies (such as GM seeds) are poised to be deployed by corporate sectors and yet their dangers for the bio-diversity of the continent and the social and economic implications of such commercialised inputs are not adequately debated and reviewed.  The rise of a new rural service economy indicates that there are ways in which new agro-based industries can be promoted to make the rural a site of sustainable production and residence. New and alternative agricultural policies are required to stem the tide of out-migration, the abandonment of land, and the overall de-agrarianisation that has set-in in the nation.

Several small and viable models of alternative agricultural and rural livelihood and governance are currently functioning in various parts of India. The cases of community-supported non-pesticide agriculture in Andhra Pradesh , organic agriculture in Sikkim, zero-budget agriculture in various parts of South India, farmers/producers marketing organisations, integrated agriculture in parts of Gujarat are some cases.  There are also a large number of farmer-led innovations in sustainable agriculture that demonstrate the potential of these alternatives on the ground. Learning from some of these and the possibility of integrating ideas from these cases for scaling up can be considered.

Given the above issues and challenges, the Indian Institute of Advanced Studies, Shimla, is organising a two and half days seminar during 27-29 September 2016 to discuss the following broad thematic issues and concerns:

  1. What is required to scaffold the marginalised majority of agriculturists (small cultivators and landless workers) so that their livelihoods can be assured and which do not render them into states of destitution?
  2. What are the alternative agricultural production systems that can ensure productivity, ecological sustainability and economic viability? How can ecologically specific and sustainable agricultural practices be encouraged?
  3. What new land relations, production, marketing, and redistribution structures and mechanisms are required to address the current problems of big capital hegemony and domination? What regulations are required to address the problems of usury, high interest rates and unfair reclamation practices?
  4.  How can rural economies ( agri-based and non-agricultural production systems) be developed and sustained?
  5. How can the changing land use dynamics and emergence of “rurban” phenomenon and rise of urban village and their long term social implications be understood and factored in the new policies?
  6. Given the old land relations and the new emerging patterns (reverse tenancy, leasing etc) what new forms of land reforms can be envisaged?
  7. What are the challenges in addressing climate change that pertain to agriculture and rural well-being?
  8. How can rural public institutions (education, health) be activated so as to cater to the needs of the people and to overcome the privatisation and further differenciation of these institutions?
  9. What are the legal and supportive regimes required to ensure that seed sovereignty rests with the people? What are the policies for ensuring bio-diversity conservation and collective intellectual property rights?
  10. What governance structures can be introduced into the Panchayat Raj system so that agriculture and livelihood issues can be addressed through decentralised mechanisms?
  11. What are the measures and policies for disaster management in rural areas? What are the specific measures required to address pressing issues such as soil degradation and water depletion?
  12. What policies can be formulated especially for tribal/Adivasi majority areas? How can forest-agricultural systems be sustained to make them ecologically and economically viable?
  13. How can the conditions of fishing communities, plantation workers, and migrant workers be improved?
  14. What are the new and appropriate technologies that can be promoted for agricultural and rural industries?

A limited number of participants will be invited for the Seminar. Those interested in participating should send (preferably by email) an abstract (500-700 words) of the proposed paper along with their C.V. to:

Call for Papers : Banking and allied issues

About the Conference

     Of the many explanations relating to the catastrophic global financial crisis of 2008 some view it as a crisis confined to the banking and securities industry while others see it to be more fundamental than that. The financial crisis was a reflection of a much deeper crisis within traditional economics and finance which can also be regarded as a crisis of Western Institutional design-financial architectures based upon flawed principles of lending. A growing number of influential thinkers see the crisis as a series of institutional failures in how the financial services industry is governed and have examined in some depth the structure and regulation of financial services, questions of governance, issues of ethics and financial innovation. These individual subjects are, however, interrelated and some can complement others but they have not been examined together as a total system; nor have alternative approaches to institutional design founded on a set of alternative ethical principles. The big unanswered questions are what mix of regulation, governance, innovation and ethics will fix the financial system and what insights can non-western thinking contribute to the discussion.

The present Conference is expected to provide a forum for discussion and critical analysis of the major challenges in finance and banking sector and networking amongst academics, policy-makers, research students, practitioners and Post Graduate students in the subject. The conference organizers would like to invite the submission of papers relating to all aspects of banking and finance; both theoretical and empirical papers are encouraged in areas which include, but are not limited to:

• Banking in Asia • Asset Pricing
• Financial Intermediation • Diversification Strategy of Banks and FIs
• Securitization • Corporate Governance
• Internationalization of Banking and Bank Products • Financial Econometrics
• Corporate Investment Valuation • Islamic Banking
• Regional Stock Markets Integration • Investment Banking and Practices
• Shariah Audit and Review • Venture Capital and Private Equity

Call for Papers: International Conference Global Migration: Rethinking Skills, Knowledge and Culture

Globalization has brought about a new paradigm where socio-cultural, political, and economic landscapes get exposed to unexpected dynamics of challenges and change. It thus becomes a matter of both challenge and opportunity for the home and host countries.

On the one hand, the economic changes over the past hundred years that includes close integration, opening of trade, ideas and information, have resulted in benefitting the industrially developed economies. On the other hand, for the developing economies, the challenges remain though of different level and kind. However, the changed circumstances globally also bring along opportunities for these states to help them overcome the challenges.The increased movement of people has resulted in theglobal development of new ideas, intercultural linkages, democratisation of global space etc. In this scenario, diaspora has emerged as an important player in the transnational sphere for both thehome and host countries.

The actual process of engaging diaspora in the development process remains a challenge for the home countries. Policies result from a complex interplay of local and global conditions, including the role of lobby groups, socio-economic and political conditions of the country, level of institutional development, technological progress. This engagement process is also mediated by the social and cultural identities of the diaspora that are not just diverse but also contested. The challenge faced by the developing countries in this regard is very different from that of the industrially advanced states.

In recent years, the policies related to human and financial capital have been gaining serious attention. Contrary to the idea of brain drain that dominated the development debate in the 60s and 70s among the scholars and policy makers of developing countries, diasporas in the age of internet are viewed as instruments of human, financial and social development of both the host and the home state. Many developing countries in the recent past have been playing a significant role in channelizing the resources through various institutional mechanisms by engaging both the government and non-governmental institutions. Developing countries have managed to channelise financial resources from their diaspora quite effectively. India has emerged as the largest recipient of remittances in the world surpassing China in the last few years. Financial capital accumulated by diaspora abroad is often repatriated to the country of origin in the form of remittances or direct investments. Human capital plays an important role in this regard and is effectively transferred across borders with the use of ICT, creating opportunities in several sectors such as higher education, training, research and development, etc. There are evidences of successful diasporic knowledge transfer in areas such as IT and Healthcare. For instance, the success of Bangalore IT boom and corporate healthcare may be attributed to the contribution of the high skilled Indian diaspora in the US.

The multidirectional engagement between diaspora and homeland is more intensive with the help of virtual platforms. There are multiple dynamics involved in shaping the contour of the diaspora and engaging them with region, nations and transnational spheres.

Conflicts and engagement in the development are simultaneous with many diasporas. However, there is a need to engage positively with all dynamics rather than ignoring the force that is so important in the globalised world.

Skills and Knowledge

Globalisation altered the economic activities in a great manner. The development of service economy and ICT has created demand for new skills and knowledge. Many developing countries suffered the initial brain drain due to the lack of absorption capacity of their skilled human resource and subsequent backwardness in the new economy. However, the scenario has been changing over time due to the globalised and mobile workforce that brought back not just financial capital but also human capital in terms of skills and knowledge.

This conference will delve into the knowledge and skill development aspect of the diaspora that remains one of the major policy thrust area in many developing countries and also how their potential can be harnessed for the development of the homeland.

Cultural Development

Cultural development is an umbrella term that relates to wide array of human activities. An active diaspora has a strong attachment with the homeland. The cultural bond with the homeland constitutes a very strong form of belonging for the diasporic communities.The conference will discuss in greater details such cultural aspects, namely, Films, literature and religion etc. so as to provide a more coherent picture of diaspora and its interrelated dynamics.

Though the core areas remain Skill, Knowledge and Cultural development, the conference is open to papers that may not directly fall into the area but provide insight into the broader aspects of diaspora and development dynamics.


About the Conference

The conference will bring together scholars from diverse fields such as academic, civil society and policy from different countries. The conference intends to provide comparative perspectives in diaspora engagement. The papers will be published in a book by an international publisher.

The conference will have more wider reach and try to represent as many countries possible so that both macro and micro perspectives and diversities of issues will be covered. There are several countries actively engaged in policies and working on a new paradigm of global engagement to tap resources in the globalised world ever increasing human mobility.The conference is conceived to address these issues, both conceptual as well as applied areas so as to give a wholistic approach to understand the issue.
