An International Conference on Crime and Investigation is being proposed to be organized at School of Law, Galgotias University, at Galgotias University, Campus – I on Saturday 4th February, 2017. The Conference will examine Indian criminal justice administration through the lens of contemporary international development, with an emphasis on the relationship between procedural rights and questions of fair trial, access to justice and quality of justice. The last decade has seen significant change in the pattern of crime and the intensity and impact of the same on the society. Terrorism has become global in nature, and the consequences of the same in terms of loss of life are phenomenal. Organised crime and its ramifications are global. Economic offences are transnational in operations and cyber crimes have no geographical limitation. Therefore the need to combat these emerging crimes, which are bound to increase in number and in frequency, will have to be addressed and tackled. The inadequacy of the existing laws in tackling these modern day crime which transcends jurisdiction is a major challenge. The Conference will usher discussion on these issues and would endeavor to find solutions to these problems by analyzing contemporary developments in different countries. The Conference will have three technical sessions devoted to discuss each of the issue in great depth.
