The Centre for Gender Justice Studies is an endeavor of the Maharashtra National Law University, Nagpur to respond to the emerging regime of rights of different genders and their protection granting them the liberty for full realization of their basic rights. With a commitment of novel contributions to the subject area, the Centre endeavors to undertake interdisciplinary studies involving legal academia and the other stakeholders and contribute in the
best possible manner to the global pool of knowledge on the subject The constitution of India guarantees equality before law and equal protection of laws. Drawing from the same, the indispensable significance of equal rights for all genders becomes apparent. However, despite bettering rates of literacy in the country, it is egregious to observe deeply vested forms of discriminations being practiced in the society that marginalize and outcast some. This form of violence needs to be dealt with iron hand where along with legal back-up, an effective communitarian support is absolutely required. At a time like this, it is hopeful to observe the growing umbrella of feminism that has sprawled wide enough to include the rainbow community and ensure justice to genders who fear free expression of their choices.


Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. It is important to observe that sex is biological manifestation of an individual, while gender is a social tag that is based on certain pre-defined norms. The Constitution of India
enshrines principles of equality before law and that all should be given equal opportunities, but fighting the odds of discrimination and prejudices is still a long way. Moreover, Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals 2015 envisages gender equality by the year 2030 and to achieve the same, the persistent obstacles must be fought with unwavering spirit. To achieve an overall development, the marginalized genders must engage socially,
economically and politically on a larger level and that is the most effective manner through which they can carve an equal space for themselves on the stage. In this backdrop, the Maharashtra National Law University, Nagpur, is organizing a Two Days National Seminar on ‘Gender Just ice- Breaking Stereotypes, Discriminations and Prejudices’.


Papers for presentation in the National Seminar are invited from academicians, practitioners, researchers, scholars and students on the issues related to specified themes.

The National Labour Law Association, Delhi and the Centre for Transparency and Accountability in Governance, NLU Delhi in collaboration with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (India Office) are organising the National Seminar on Contractualisation in Employment — Law and Policy : Challenges and Solution from 17-18 September at the National Law University Delhi.

About the Seminar

The Corporates, pursuant to globalization and inherent competition, have generally been adopting Labour rationalization policies in order to reduce costs to be competitive. In pursuance of the same, several developed and developing countries have introduced plans like Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS), lay-offs/retrenchment, and closures both in the organized and the unorganized sectors. A significant shift has taken place in the sector from permanent to temporary, casual workers and now towards fixed-term contract employment. This has weakened the collective bargaining machinery. Instances are not lacking where permanent workers, including those from non-core activities, are removed and replaced by contractual workers through outsourcing to other firms or direct recruitment.

Further, some States in India have exempted several small establishments from the purview of labour inspection. On the other hand, some employers have even offered lower wages to the workforce as a condition for reopening closed industries. Workers have been accepting such exploitative offers in the background of the non-existent social protection. Moreover, under the WTO regime, labour and economic policies seem to result in the closure or disappearance of many companies, especially those engaged in consumer goods. The major issue that emerges is how the industrial units which are sick or closed or under liquidation due to the worldwide economic crisis would be facilitated.

The COVID19 pandemic has caused major havoc worldwide, including in India. The worst effect has been on the workers who have lost their jobs and other means of livelihood. In addition to this, the shrinking of national economies, declining trade, increasing inflations have created a humanitarian crisis in many parts of the world. Can the reform in laws and political posturing alone bring the economies out of the present crisis? Do we need to think of a new form of Social Contract?

The Seminar will deliberate on the contemporary issues relating to the contractualisation of the workforce – policy and the law. In this context, an attempt would be made to draw lessons from the best practices followed in other jurisdictions.

The following sub-themes will be discussed —

  • Fixed Term Employment

  • Contractual employment or Perennial work: Labour – Law and Policies

  • Legal Protection to contractual workers: Social Security etc

  • Inter-State Migrant workers and their rights

  • Gig- workers-and Platform workers

  • Regularization of contractual workers: Judicial trends

  • Industrial development and contratualisation of workforce

  • State policy on contratualisation of work

  • ILO and other agencies on contractual employment

  • Tripartism and social dialogue

  • Law and policies on Contractual employment in other nations

  • Labour Law Reforms and Contractualisation of workers

Guidelines for Seminar Papers

The Authors should apply research skills and appropriate research methodology. The research paper should be thematic and desired to be linked to the sub-themes. The length of the abstract should not be more than 500 words. It must be typed in Times New Roman, Font Size 12 on A4 size paper with 1″ margin on all sides with 1.5 line spacing using MS Word application. Footnotes should follow the SILC standard of footnoting. Endnotes are not allowed. At the end of the paper, the author’s brief profile should have an E-mail ID, contact number, and address.
