Hindus believe that one who is graced to die on the land of Varanasi would attain salvation and freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth. Adobe of Lord Shiva and Parvati, the origins of Varanasi are yet unknown. The Ganges in Varanasi is believed to have the power to wash away the sins of the mortals.

As part of the FRAME project (Fostering Human Rights among European Policies) the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) organizes an academic workshop on Human Rights and Vulnerability: Conceptualization, Contestation and Resilience on 5 April 2017. This workshop aims to bring together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars working on the intersections of human rights and the notion of vulnerability.
In recent years, vulnerability has emerged as a concept in human rights law. The concept has been used to elaborate states’ obligations towards people who are particularly at risk of suffering human rights violations. At the same time, human rights law and institutions are vulnerable themselves. Populist movements foster a backlash against human rights. In the face of this backlash, can an emphasis on the idea of universal human vulnerability strengthen human rights? Does the concept of vulnerability hold potential to make human rights live up to its universalist aspirations?
The organizers are looking for abstracts on the links between human rights and vulnerability. Abstracts could for instance address:
the usefulness of the notion of vulnerability for human rights struggles today;
the increasing vulnerability of human rights organizations;
the conceptualization of vulnerability in human rights law;
the human rights of specific ‘vulnerable’, disadvantaged or marginalized groups;
the notion of resilience in human rights movements and/or human rights law;
the ways in which different human rights organizations – such as UN treaty bodies or regional organizations – attempt to provide resilience in the face of human vulnerability;
different political and/or philosophical understandings of vulnerability;
vulnerability in relation to specific rights such as the right to health;
the distinctions between vulnerability and related notions such as human dignity, intersectionality, solidarity and resilience.
Abstracts should be no longer than 400 words, including title of the presentation, author’s name, affiliations and email address. PhD candidates and other early career researchers are particularly encouraged to apply. Please send your abstract by 6 March 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com.
Authors of the selected abstracts will be required to prepare a 20 minutes’ presentation. We plan to invite approximately 10 speakers and leave plenty of time for discussion.
During the workshop we will discuss the possibilities of publishing the results of the workshop in an edited volume or a special journal issue.
Speakers and participants are required to cover their own travel expenses.

Most countries of world, of late, are experiencing dilematic growth trajectory. On one hand GDP growth appears to be rapid and on the other hand fruits of growth are not reaped equally by all. Instead growth benefits are appropriated by only a small fraction of economy. Further it is evident from economic crisis of China, Japan, Russia and other oil economies that such growth may not sustain for long.
Major and immediate challenge of current century is to generate inclusive balanced and sustainable growth. In order to create better and sustainable future Government, NGO , corporates will have to play their roles most effectively and work collectively. From this perspective Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Manangement Development is organising International Conference on Inclusive Economic Growth and Sustainable Development.

The OP Jindal Global University, the Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and the Anti-Corruption Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law are organizing the first ever Conference of Business Ethics and Corruption in the Globalized World.
The collapse of Lehman Brothers and the subsequent financial crisis has opened debate on the wider role of business in society. As the regulations guiding transnational flow of trade and investment become increasingly permissive, technology reduces distance, and markets and supply chains get more integrated, modern business entities can be seen as inhabiting a global society. In such a society a corporate entity cannot be seen as a mere automaton guided by “self-interest” but as a moral entity that has citizenship obligations of its own. One critical obligation is that businesses shall not engage in acts of corruption.
Corruption can be defined simply as abuse of public office for private gain. (World Bank 1997).There can be ethical, economic and rights based arguments against business participation in corruption.
Thomas Donaldson and Thomas Dunfee propose an integrative social contract theory whereby business and society enters into an agreement of mutual rights and obligations, suitable for their circumstances. Though the term of these contracts may vary with the demands of the given society, they are subject to certain hyper-norms, i.e. overarching norms to which these contracts are subject. The prohibition of corruption is one such hyper-norm. As Steven Salbu points out, corruption is disfavored by all societies in all points of time. Susan Rose-Ackerman argues that prohibition of corruption is an obvious corollary of laws that allows business to exist.
Scholars across disciplines like Susan Rose-Ackerman, Johann Lambsdorff, Robert Klitgaard, Philip Nichols, Andrew Spalding, Daniel Kaufman and Shang-Jin Wei et al have comprehensively marshaled together research that demonstrates the impediment to economic growth, degradation of social and political institutions, misallocation of resources and skills, impoverishment, and numerous other societal ills that corruption inflicts on polities and economies. Research also shows that corruption acts as a regressive tax on companies, inhibit firm growth affect corporate structuring etc. Thus to use the simple economic paradigm, corruption can be seen as welfare decreasing and hence as a fit target for corporate and commercial regulation.
Corruption can also be seen as a violation of human rights. It is an impediment to access to justice and rule of law, both fundamental human rights (C Raj Kumar 2011). Alternatively if one adopts the capabilities approach of Dr. Amartya Sen, widespread and systemic corruption can be seen as impediment to freedoms and reduction in the capability of the citizen to democratic participation. Thus the issue of corruption by business organizations merges into the wider issue of the obligation of business to uphold human rights.
These approaches to corruption are not necessarily in conflict with each other but supplement each other in framing law and policy.
Call for papers:-
We are soliciting papers for the first conference/workshop. We invite thoughtful papers from academics, practitioners and students .Papers can be submitted on any of these broad themes:

ndia went through the process of liberalisation, privatisation, and globalisation of its economic policies in 1991, and has undergone vast changes in its legal and economic landscape since the early 1990s. With this opening up of the economy completing 25 years in 2016, the occasion is ripe to examine its impact on India – specifically, on the various laws enacted and amended subsequent to liberalisation.

‘You judge me because you don’t know me. You won’t know me because you’ve judged me’
I made that quote up, but I’m positive I’ve read something similar a long while ago and it made so much sense. Each of us on this planet has been created distinctly different from each other with regards to our physiology, emotions, intellect and psychology. To make matters more complicated, the persons who we are, are continuously shaped by families and communities, religions and races, national beliefs and borders, ethnicity and inter-generational traditions, besides the strongly enforced inherited cultural values. And then, there is the media in all its forms, educating us about life, death and survival.
Our existence and role on this planet as humans is very often questioned. Our identities have been continuously challenged, our beliefs often contradicted. Who are we? Where do we come from? Does our skin colour decide how beautiful we are? Is it important to be beautiful? What if men are actually from Venus and women from Mars? Who do we pray to? Do we need to pray? National borders – are they necessary? Can’t we sing the same anthem and salute one flag?
We travel the world, meet so many different people, taste varied cuisines and learn to speak multiple languages, does this make us global citizens? All these questions need an answer…
Pack your bags for a Global Gathering and catch a flight to Goa. Living lifestyles apart from the rest of India, with distinct festivities, celebrations and recreational habits, Goans have been loved and hated for being blessed with such a liberal atmosphere. It’s not just the socio-cultural environment that makes this coastal state special, but the humid, yet breezy tropical weather causes it to be the perfect spot for a spiritual vacation. Vast stretches of sea and shore; kitchens that produce delicious seafood; green fields and football fields; streets selling beer and binge meals, houses that remind us of the Portuguese and of course the musical harmony that binds people from different communities together – this is Goa and this is why you ought to be on that flight.
Global Gathering, Goa 2016, is designed to attract mediators, law-makers, law-keepers, peacekeepers, thinkers, philosophers, academicians, journalists, spiritual leaders, political scientists, artistes, performers and every other professional committed to making this world a better place. The first edition of this event will take place on February 29 and March 1, 2016 in Goa, India. Spanning across two days, the event will cover debates, discussions, dinners and a whole lot of entertainment. It will facilitate networking among peers and professionals, besides providing a taste of Goa. If you looking to combine business with pleasure, then register to be part of Global Gathering, Goa 2016.
Peace has never been celebrated at a better venue. See you soon.
Jonathan Rodrigues CEO, Global Gathering, Goa 2016.
