“All men are not created equal, and that is the root of social evil”

-Frank Herbert

Marginalization has been, by and large, described as blatant action or tendency of human societies whereby certain sections in our community are removed or excluded from the prevalent systems of protection and integration, thus limiting their opportunities and means for survival. Marginalization lies at the core of all social, political and economic conflicts wherein vulnerable groups undergo victimization.

The historical discrimination and exclusion encountered by certain groups and communities have been sought to be ameliorated by the Indian constitutional provisions of inclusion and positive discrimination. Steps of great magnitude, for empowerment of these excluded and marginalized groups, have been institutionalized under the Constitution of India leading to social restructuring of the entire socio-politico-economic system.

In spite of the express rights that have been embodied in the Indian Constitution, questions still loom about the sidelined fate of the unorganized sector. The condition of the unorganized sector, brings to fore the important question as to whether there is inadequacy in the giving of rights or inadequacy in terms of protection of already existent rights. A matter of serious consequence is the empowerment and integration of differently abled persons. The issues faced by this group also questions the veracity of the rights guaranteed to them. Another pertinent question relates to rights that are given to, what would become the backbone of the nation someday, i.e., the children. Issues relating to education, health and general well-being of the children in India are still highly debatable. The questions relating to the legal safeguards granted to the women and the achievement of gender justice in the Indian climate is one that has not been fully settled upon to this date. The constitutional provisions, legislative protections and the issues faced by migrants, displaced persons and refugees are an area of utmost importance especially considering the diverse populous of the country. In this National Conference on Constitution and Marginalized Sectors: Challenges in the Twenty First Century, we seek to dwell upon some of the imperative questions of these times, relating to these marginalized sectors, to understand how such adaptations fit within our constitutional framework.

2nd NLSIR Public Law Symposium On “Delimiting Media Freedoms: Discovering The ‘Delicate Balance’ Between Article 19 And Article 21″

The National Law School of India Review, the flagship journal of National Law School of India University, Bangalore is pleased to present the second NLSIR Public Law Symposium to be held on 22 December, 2012 at the National Law School campus.

Last year, the editorial board of NLSIR spearheaded the first edition of the Public Law Symposium on the “Adjudication of Socio-Economic Rights by the Supreme Court of India” in an effort to initiate a systematic study of public law jurisprudence in India.

The theme of the symposium this year is “Delimiting Media Freedoms: Discovering the ‘Delicate Balance’ Between Article 19 and Article 21″, an issue which has seen significant legal developments in the recent past. For this project, we are collaborating with the Alternative Law Forum, Bangalore. The symposium shall field opinions from the judiciary, practising lawyers, the media and students, and will be attended by renowned luminaries including Justice Muralidhar (Delhi High Court), Geeta Seshu (The Hoot), Apar Gupta (Partner, Advani & Co.), amongst others.

The discussion will be divided into two sessions. In the first session (scheduled between 10.30 A.M.-12.30 P.M.) the panel will discuss the right to privacy and the problems posed by its uncertain ambit of protection under Article 21. Questions regarding the balance between the right to privacy and the media’s purported objective to protect public interest as well as the standards of privacy enjoyable by public figures together with the development of procedural innovations globally will constitute an important part of the discussion.

The second session (scheduled between 1.30 P.M.-3.30 P.M.) will focus on the controversial subject of ‘trial by media’ and the propriety of the judiciary governing the content of media reports through instruments such as the recently invoked ‘doctrine of postponement’. Lunch and refreshments will be provided by the Organizing Committee.

The registration fee for the symposium is Rs. 200 for students and Rs. 500 for professionals. All those interested are requested to register their attendance Register

Competition Law Event: Roundtable Discussion on ‘Impact of Cartels on the Poor

Competition Law Event: 5th Dec | New Delhi | Roundtable Discussion on ‘Impact of Cartels on the Poor’ | CUTS International

Agenda for the Roundtable Discussion on ‘Impact of Cartels on the Poor’

1500 – 1530: Registration at Dy. Chairman Hall, 2nd Floor, V.P. House, Rafi Marg, Constitution Club of India

1530 – 1600: Opening Session, “Effective competition regime – increasing consumer welfare and economic growth” The session will focus on the benefits of effective implementation of a competition regime in increasing consumer welfare and economic growth. One often refers to the importance of promoting consumer welfare and economic growth through the application of competition law. However, the connection between consumer welfare, economic growth and the enforcement of competition law is not always straightforward. Thus, it would be important for the speakers to address the different interpretations of this important concept, and to focus on how competition law can best be used to promote consumer welfare and economic growth.

1600 – 1700: Roundtable Discussion on ‘Impact of Cartels on the Poor’ Cartels are considered the most egregious of anti-competitive practices. As always, it is the poor who suffers the most. The purpose of the session is to discuss issues pertaining to cartelisation and how it affects the common man in India. It would be useful for the Speakers to provide few examples and solutions on how to deal with cartels which results in exploitation of the common man. It would be pertinent to flag challenges in tackling Cartels and the need to create awareness on such issues.

1700 – 1710: Vote of Thanks

1710 – 1800: Tea/Coffee & Snacks
