Geeta Institute of Law | International Seminar on Global Enactment of Justice for Women and Children: Issues and Challenges

The Geeta Institute of Law is organising a seminar on the  topic Global Enactment of Justice for Women and Children: Issues and Challenges and  proudly invites keynote speakers from leading  Universities and  other organization across the Globe. The seminar aims to provide a platform for discussion on recent advances in justice system for women and children, which include areas of basic human rights, lack of oppor tunities and growth, inept legal systems and other challenges.

Seminar Background

Global Justice is rooted in the aspiration to make the world a better place. It seeks to help us understand how human beings – no matter  who they  are  or where they live  – can be treated  fairly.  The world is  in fux; religious fundamentalisms, racism, xenophobia, migration and displacement due to  climate change,  civil wars  in different parts  of  the  world and economic injustice are driving a backlash on women’s and children’s rights and increasing restrictions on their basic human rights and freedoms. Repressive and undemocratic regimes are stepping up their assault on the political and democratic space for civil society. This is despite significant advances in international commitments and national legislation; unfortunately victories in policy and law  reform are often undermined by  weak implementation. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identified the importance of  addressing poverty alongside inequality. To realise the level of transformation envisaged  in the  SDG’s Agenda  2030 requires confronting the power relationships  and  vested interests that  maintain and thrive on exploitation of women and children in society.

This Seminar will provide an excellent opportunity  for students and faculty alike to keep abreast of recent developments, share ideas,  raise awareness of  practices that ameliorates the   working of  existing social  and  legal  frameworks and help in establishing new Institutions and forums which can  provide justice to women and children.
