Disability is a concept which is understood and interpreted by various social thinkers, jurists and social workers keeping in mind the inherent philosophy of the term in its actual sense.
The Seminar is intended to provide platform for lawyers, disability researchers and activists from across India and abroad to share their learning and perspectives on issues concerning socio-legal aspects of disability in India.
The intention is to not only explore the process of accessing justice through litigations and procedural justice practices but also explore matters concerning how law indirectly and often directly impacts the lives of people with disabilities in India.
The platform also intends to discuss both national and international laws that concern people with disabilities.
The International Seminar has been conceptualized with the basic objective of taking stock of the progress made by India in the sphere of law, and creates a space for discussion on all matters pertaining to legal issues concerning disability.
The outcomes of the Seminar will be published in order to strengthen the existing knowledge framework on socio-legal aspects of disability in India.
