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:
Please feel free to contact the editors, Nicole Busby ( or Grace James ( if you require more information.

Date: 19th January 2020

Venue: Malviya Smriti Bhawan,  Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, New Delhi

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.

The Conference on Custom and International Investment Law held at Washington,U.S.A, 23rd -24th September 2020.

Venue : The America University Washington College of Law

Date : 23rd and 24th September 2019

No registration fee.

About the Conference

The conference’s subject is “Custom and International Investment law”. The connection between customary international law (CIL) and international investment law has never been more pronounced. Despite this, several areas and topics that highlight this inter-connection remain woefully under analyzed and consistently overlooked. The present conference aims at addressing this Lacuna. The event will bring together leading academics, international judges/arbitrators and other practitioners, to discuss the most pertinent issues relating to the interaction between CIL and the International Investment Law, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective.

Call for Papers

The Organizing Committee of the conference “Custom and International Investment Law” is pleased to invite to the Conference, which will hold six thematic panels, an expert round-table and feature several keynote speakers (with invited experts and speakers, inter alia a former judge of International Court of Arbitrators). Scholars and practitioners interested in presenting during the Conference are encouraged to send their proposals. In selecting speakers, the Organizing Committee will consider the quality of the proposed papers. Each paper will be double-blind peer reviewed. Also, the speakers are requested to submit their paper before the conference (deadline 1st September 2020). Submitting the papers on that date is a precondition in order to be considered for the prepared publication. Authors of papers , which will be selected for publications, will be given time (until 1st November) to prepare the final version of their article/ chapter.

Within this framework, six main thematic issues will be discussed. Therefore, we invite submission of proposals engaging with any aspect that falls under the purview of these thematic issues as a dimension of the overarching theme of the conference. The organizers welcome proposals addressing one of the following issues, which set out exemplary but not exhaustive questions that may be addressed in the presentation and paper.

Thematic Issues

Thematic Issue 1: Importance and Evolution of CIL in International Investment Law. How has the evolution of international investment law affected our understanding of CIL? How and to what extent does CIL remain relevant for the contemporary problems with which
international investment law is faced? What can we learn from the practice of the mixed claims commissions (Mexico/Venezuela, Versailles Treaty commissions, etc.) regarding the emergence and development of customary rules of investment law? How did/do 19th and 20th century customary investment law rules (or the fact of their absence) influence or impact the
emergence of the present-day ISDS and investment treaty regime? How would the investment regime look like today if at certain points in time a customary rule (e.g.: NIEO) had emerged, while in fact it didn’t (counter-factual thinking)?

Thematic Issue 2: Interpretation of CIL in International Investment Law. Despite the importance of CIL in International Investment Law, both as primary and secondary rules, an area that has been relatively untouched has been that of interpretation of CIL. Investment tribunals do not merely identify the content of CIL rules through the classical doctrine of
State practice and opinio juris, but quite often achieve this content-determination through a process of interpretation that resembles quite closely that of treaty interpretation. The point of this thematic issue will be to explore this method of content-determination of CIL, and investigate the interpretative practices of CIL that are characteristic of International
Investment Law. For instance, are we dealing with rules of interpretation, or just merely principles of logic, when we discuss interpretation of CIL in international investment law? How similar are these rules/principles to treaty interpretation (i.e. do we use teleological, systemic, or other methods known in treaty interpretation)? Have the rules of interpretation themselves been interpreted by investment tribunals?

Thematic Issue 3: State Responsibility and Wrongfulness in International Investment Law. Within this thematic issue, the relevant issues are how the customary rules on State responsibility are applied in international investment law. Several sub-sets of rules on State responsibility raise intriguing questions within the scope of international investment law,
circumstances precluding wrongfulness, most notably countermeasures and state of necessity, being the most prominent of these. How do investment arbitration tribunals apply and interpret the customary rules of state responsibility? How do domestic courts, ruling on challenges to investment arbitration awards, apply and interpret the customary rules of state responsibility? Is there a noticeable difference between the practice of arbitral tribunals and domestic courts? Do arbitral tribunals/domestic courts follow and ICJ practice and the ILC commentary or do they significantly deviate from them? If so, do they do so across the board
or only regarding specific rules and specific topics? Has there been a change in the practice since the adoption of the 2001 ILC Articles?

Thematic Issue 4: State Responsibility and Compensation. Despite the fact that state responsibility and standards of compensation are a critical issue in contemporary investment arbitration there is still a great degree of uncertainty surrounding these topics. This is further exacerbated by the fact that a clear understanding of their normative status and interplay is crucial not only to the adopted litigation strategy, but also to the decision of whether to pursue litigation of a dispute at all. Within this thematic issue, we aim to examine a number of critical issues. Should the standards of compensation be perceived as reflecting CIL? Are the established methods of valuation, if any, norms of CIL? How do courts arrive at these standards, through an evaluation of state practice and opinio juris or through an interpretative exercise of a more general pre-existing CIL rule? Given the criticism of PCIJ and ICJ judgments on investment law (see, for instance, the debate on whether the PCIJ really applied CIL in the Chorzów Factory case) what is truly the content of the contemporary principles for damages and compensation that stem from CIL? In sum, which of the following are the methods that are applied in investment law? Are they an assertion, an application or an interpretation of existing CIL rules? Or are they perhaps something entirely new and beyond custom or even beyond law?

Thematic Issue 5: CIL and Execution and Annulment Proceedings Before Domestic Courts. The role of CIL in execution and annulment proceedings in domestic courts is the focal point of this thematic issue. Examining the practice of national courts and regional or country specific differences with respect to their approach to CIL and investment law will yield interesting results. For example, how do domestic courts interpret and apply CIL in execution and annulment proceedings? What different patterns exist and what are the reasons for such divergences (or convergences) of the national approaches? What is the approach of domestic courts to the elements of custom under international law? Are there differences discernible with regard to specific issue areas or with regard to specific countries?

Thematic Issue 6: TWAIL, CIL and International Investment Law. The questions to be asked within this thematic issue are: What lessons that can be learned from the Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL), e.g. which customary norms derive from the times of gunboat diplomacy and how has their continued relevance shaped the investment regime as it stands today? What are the regional differences regarding their approach to CIL and what can we learn from the diverse practice of various continents (in opposition to the Western-centric prevailing attitude)? For example, is there a regional Latin American CIL of relevance for international investment law and arbitration?

Application Process

To submit a proposal, please send an email to the following address, attaching an abstract of max. 800 words, together with a CV (no more than 2 pages) in a single document (.pdf format).

International Patent Drafting Competition (IPDC) 2017


IIPRD, along with Khurana & Khurana, Advocates and IP Attorneys (K&K) and its eminent foreign associates, is organizing its Third International Patent Drafting Competition (IPDC) as an earnest initiative with a sincere objective of spreading awareness of patent drafting as a skill across technology domains, and for helping practitioners, colleagues, and stakeholders understand various intricacies of patent drafting as a skill and learn from each other as to nitty-gritties involved therein.

IPDC is a new Initiative by IIPRD and its prestigious Indian and Foreign Associates to bring about greater awareness and respect for Intellectual Property (IP) Issues, particularly Patents, which have, over time, become more relevant to the Indian Ecosystem than ever.

With rising Patent Litigation in India, quality of patents and the scope provided thereby is a crucial aspect that is evaluated/scrutinized by the Courts/Appellate Boards. Furthermore, gone are the times when Indian Companies, Universities, and Individuals were only looking forward to create Defensive Patent Portfolios in India, whereas they are now looking towards the aggressive portfolio with sustainable commercial value. More and more PCT and Convention Applications are being filed each month/year by Indian Applicants with around 30 Indian Prioirty Taking PCT Applications being published each week. Most of these patents are filed with an objective of either Licensing, or Enforcement, or In-House Commercialization, and hence quality of patent drafting including claim drafting, scope of protection accorded, variety of embodiments presented, support in the specification, limitations provided, among other aspects are crucial to Patent Applications.

This initiative of IPDC comes with an earnest effort by IIPRD and its associates and leading sister Law Firm Khurana & Khurana, IP Attorneys (K&K) to promote development of Patent Drafting as a Skill Set and encourage more and more technical people to take up Patent Drafting as a Professional Competency, along with identifying and encouraging Top Patent Drafters.

Modus Operandi of Conducting IPDC

Step 1: On 1st August 2017, IIPRD and K&K, on their websites ( and, would put forth Three Invention Disclosures (describing three Inventions), one each in the domain of Electronics/ Hi-Tech, Mechanical, and Chemistry/Pharmaceuticals.

Call for Papers: KMWSC & NUJS’ Conference on Anti Human Trafficking Initiatives [25 – 26 Nov, Kolkata].

Background :-

The crime of trafficking in persons is carried out by different types of traffickers, ranging from individuals exploiting their partners to organized criminal groups operating across national borders.

Trafficking in persons is usually thought of as a “Transitional Organized Crime”. And indeed, many trafficking outfits meet their criteria of transitional organized crime groups as spelled out in the United Nations Conventions against Transitional Organized Crime.

Aspects of the crime are often committed in different countries by criminals not necessarily hailing from the country where the crime was detected. These criminals may have organized themselves to a lesser or greater extent.

In some cases the complexity of the crime requires a high level of organization. In other cases, victims of trafficking in persons may have been trafficked by an individual trafficker operating in a local community.

In both cases, the profits that human trafficking can generate is the prime motivation for the criminals, and exploiting other people can be lucrative. Just as profit potential is an important consideration for most legitimate businesses, so it is for traffickers, who have a strong financial incentive to operate where profits are high.

Broadly speaking, this means that traffickers will often choose to carry out the exploitation in a location where this will be more profitable. At the same time, traffickers also have to take into account costs and the risk of detection, which tends to increase as more territory and international borders are traversed. A glimpse of the world statistics in percentage published by United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in “A Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2014”. The 2014 TIP report states the poor record of prosecution in the region by all countries. In 2013 only 7,124 offenders were identified. 1,904 were prosecuted and 974 were actually convicted.

This is in the backdrop of the fact that there are over 12000-50000 women and children who are trafficked into India every year, according to estimates by several NGO’s.

Over 300000 children are involved in begging. A very large number of children are involved in forced labour in various industries.

National Seminar


14th – 15th March 2016 Invitation

The Department of Sociology, North-Eastern Hill University Shillong under SAP-DSA cordially invites presentation of research papers to the two day Inter-disciplinary National Seminar on ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIETY : THE CONTEXT OF NORTH EAST INDIA to be held at North- Eastern Hill University, Shillong on the 14th- 15th March,2016



Department of Sociology North-Eastern Hill University Shillong .
14 – 15 March,2016

The significance of the physical environment as a formative factor in shaping human life and existence in a given habitat has become an important area of interest to social scientists in recent times. It has been commonly held that the environmental conditions stimulate human responses in their ideas and actions which in the long run results in the formation of social habits and customs. Living in harmony with nature has been an integral part of traditional and indigenous societies.To them nature has often been exemplified as ‘cultural space’ expressed through its invocation and representation in myths ,ethics, beliefs and folkways. Traditional wisdom of the indigenous communities in particular has endowed them with skills and practices that are reflective of their deep sense of eco-consciousness. This leads one to the concept of ‘holistic ecology’ by which we understand how tribal and indigenous communities have lived in close symbiosis with nature and natural resources and how they view themselves as an integral

component of the eco-system. Here the environment figures as functioning in a dual capacity – on the one hand we have the physical components such as climate,topography,animal and insect life ,vegetation and soil which directly or indirectly shape human activity and productivity, and on the other ,man alters the landscape, fells trees, erodes soil, builds dams etc. moulding the earth to meet his own needs. Moving firmly within such parameters of ‘integrated viewpoint’ of humans within the eco-system boundaries we can pose a few questions before us- “Can society exist apart from environment?” Or “Is environment expressive of society and culture?”

The North East of India presents a dual picture of bio-diversity and socio-cultural diversity. .The tribal communities in this region have maintained a close symbiotic relationship with their natural environment since time immemorial . They have maintained long traditions of depending on the natural resources of their own localities and preserving it besides having an extensive knowledge of the biota, the terrain, the waters, the climate and its seasonal changes, the plants and animals, their habitat preferences and local distribution, behaviour and uses. Such expertise and knowledge generally referred to as Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK)accumulated on the basis of their experience and has been applied by the local community in their everyday life to obtain food, medicines, fuel wood and other necessities and in avoiding dangerous situations. Forests besides being the source of economic livelihood,have often been revered as the natural abode of spirits. This ‘sacred ‘ character of the forest finds expression in the customary practice of preserving sacred groves amongst many communities in the North East, which are held with high esteem even today.The agro-biocultural links of the tribes and their natural environment has found expression in the various indigenous food habits and agricultural practices of the tribal communities of the region such as jhum cultivation,which has generated a new area of interest in marginalization of land, agro-bio diversity, food security and nutrition,indigenous economies and livelihoods etc.

However,what is of grave concern in recent times is the way in which drastic changes in the environment is taking place.Today we find issues of ‘development’ and ‘environment’ and the ‘politics of environment’ have taken a new turn and acquired centre stage amongst academicians,environmentalists ,scientists ,planners and policy makers.This brings us to the new environmental debate on development options in contemporary India and the ecological limits to growth and development. It is against this backdrop that this seminar seeks to focus on the linkages between culture and ecology.Given the ecological and cultural diversity of North East India ,it is hoped that the seminar would develop a better understanding of the reciprocal interactions between the bio-physical world and the human social world and in the long run contribute towards a healthy respect for the ecological sensibilities of indigenous communities.


1. To have a conceptual and theoretical understanding of the relationship between tribes and their natural environment.

2. To explore the indigenous wisdom of conservation of land, forest , agro-ecology ,women and natural resource management, indigenous economies and livelihood patterns ,local food systems and wild edibles ,Traditional Knowledge System(TKS) of medicinal plants etc.

3.To examine the challenges and problems of the tribes of the region with regard to their access to natural resources such as landlessness ,interventions, displacement, in the light of the existing environmental legislations and enforcement .


1.Ecology,Culture and History : Theoritical considerations

2. Social framework of ecology : Representation of nature in folk tradition, art and culture of the tribes.

3.Ecology and traditional wisdom- sustainable use and conservation practices of land and forest management, agro-biology, local food systems,medicinal plants, local economies and livelihood patterns.

4.:Emerging Issues : Community rights over land and forest, livelihood interventions, development issues, Government legislations versus customary laws with regard to land and forest, Common Property Resources(CPR’s) and access to natural resources etc.


The seminar is inter-disciplinary and therefore it is expected that participants come from different disciplinary backgrounds to share their research experiences in the field and generate long-lasting academic and professional relationships.

A very striking feature of Goa is the harmonious relationship among various religious communities, who have lived together peacefully for generations. Though a late entrant to the planning process, Goa has emerged as one of the most developed States in India and even achieved the ranking of one of the best states in India with regards to investment environment and infrastructure.

Call for Papers : Two days National Seminar On Combating Corruption, Black Money, Money Laundering:The Challenges ahead to the Indian Economy

Back ground:India since independence has started its journey towards the overall development. Throughout the decade several steps have been taken by the government to ease its journey towards overall development. But the journey is not so easy. There are so many obstacles to development; the obstacles are not only economic but also social as well as political.

Our economy is still considered as “DEVELOPING” according to World Bank classification even after 67 years of independence. India with its population of 1210 million in 2011, sharing 17.0 percent of world population, is among the poorest of the economies of the world. There are debates on different obstacles to the Indian economic development.

Now–a-days we generally point out food stuff inflation, low progress in industry and agriculture, huge trade deficit and budget deficit. Inspite of all these we cannot overlook corruption and its dent on the Indian economic development. Indian’s rank in Corruption Perception Index (CPI) prepared by Transparency International (TI), Berlin, is 95 among the 182 countries in 2011. So India is ranked as a highly corrupted country. According to Mr.K.R.Narayanan, former President of India “Sheer opportunism and valueless power politics have taken over the place of principles and idealism, relationship between people, groups and parties …. and corruption is corroding the vitals of politics and our society”.   It is a very difficult task to define corruption. In a general sense, it is concerned with “bribery”. But in a development sense, it is concerned with the deviation from the avowed objectives of state.

In this context we have to mention “black economy” which relates to the function of an unsanctioned sector running with parallel to the avowed social objectives. The black economy is a confrontation of legitimate and illegitimate sector. It is hindering the State effort to establish a social order based on equality and justice for all. It was expected in Indian economy – a mixed economy where public and private sector coexist, that both the sector will promote investment and output. Public sector concentrated on the creation of economic infrastructure in the form of roads, railways, irrigation etc., the development of heavy ,basic and defence industries and provision of better education and health facilities whereas rest of the economy was left to be developed by private sector. But with the increasing economic activities after independence the black sector was also expanding and paved the way to emergence of a class which derives its maximum source of power from black money. Black Money in simple terms means cash flow on which no tax is paid. So the operations of black money operators have resulted a “black economy” or parallel economy.The creation of black money has reduced the loss of revenue to the state as a consequence of tax evasion. Also it has resulted in large scale undervaluation of property and in this way black money is being made white. It is also to be noted that a part of black incomes are kept in cash which frustrated the Government effort to control excess demand with the measures of credit control. It is often reported that black money results in fraudulent transfer of fund from India to foreign countries violating the foreign exchange regulation. Also there exists transfer of funds, in order to conceal a transaction of dubious or illegal origin.

Based on various studies on illegal capital parked in the country, Public Interest Litigations were filled in the Supreme Court of India under Article 32 of the Constitution.  Consequent to various directions given by the Supreme Court of India various steps were taken by the then UPA Government and one major step taken by the then Government was to put inpublic domain a White Paper on Black Money. After assuming office on 16th May 2014, BJP led government took decision to set up a Special Investigation Team having retired Supreme Court judges as Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively. Since its constitution SIT has submitted reports to the Supreme Court of India.

All these do not necessarily mean that India can not turn the things around. Government of India has taken several steps to combat the menace. Government constituted a committee headed by Justice K.N.Wanchoo to examine the problem of black money. The Committee was to “examine and suggest legal and administrative measures for countering and avoidance of direct taxes”. The committee made valuable suggestions, the implementation of which helped considerably in checking tax evasion. The Wanchoo Committee, in its report in 1971, described black money as a “cancerous growth in the country’s economy, which if not checked in time, will surely lead to its ruination”. Government of India has tried to tackle black money with Amnesty Schemes popularly called Voluntary Disclosure Schemes and Special Bearer Bond Scheme. It is a known fact that these schemes brought meagre amount in government coffer.

It has also initiated reduction of control in 1991 with LPG model;with Rights to information Act for transparency; FEMA 1998 to simplify the law relating to foreign exchange for facilitating external trade and payments and for promoting the orderly development and maintaining foreign exchange market in India; Money Laundering Act, 2002 to prevent transfer of funds in order to conceal a transaction of dubious or illegal origin. International community in recent times has adopted conventions to deal with corruption and money laundering. India has signed and ratified that Convention and made them a part of Indian Law through legislative and administrative measures. The Indian tax laws have been amended a number of times to strengthen anti-tax evasion measures. Inspite of allthese measures, we have miles to go.
