Quest Sociolegal Review | Workshop on Manual Scavenging in India

About the workshop

Manual Scavenging has been one of the most underrated and rarely discussed issues that are prevalent in Indian society. Even after the judgement of the Supreme Court in Safai Karamchari Andolan v. UOI, the practice is still continued. The combined report of the International Labour Organization and World Bank stated that “Manual Scavenging has gone underground in India.”

In order to create awareness and understanding towards this issue, The Quest Sociolegal Review in collaboration with the Centre for Law and Policy Research and Dalit Camera presents a workshop on Manual Scavenging.

Our Media Partners for this event are SCCOnline and EBC.
