Organized by: Faculty of Law, MDU Rohtak
Venue: Conference Hall, Institute of Hotel and Tourism Management, M. D. University, Rohtak
Theme of the National Seminar
National Seminar: A move that gained momentum in the closing years of 20th century was the need to establish public policies seen as ‘policy sciences of democracy’ that address human rights–human dignity, self-determination, empowerment-economic, cultural, social, and political and removal of powerlessness. Needless to say human rights are interdependent, comprehensive, and therefore indivisible. These call for both affirmative and transformative actions.
The primary objective of public policy is to rationalize the use of scarce resources in the state’s fulfillment of activities. The state’s human rights obligation at all spatial scales include: to respect, to protect, to guarantee, and to fulfill. In addition a basic standard for each right revolves around the principles of: availability, accessibility, quality, adaptability, and acceptability. These issues gain prominence in a welfare state of vast diversity and disposition like India. The question is: How can we have the human rights perspective permeate the entire public policy cycle?
‘The National Seminar on Human rights vis-a-vis Public Policy’ will act as a platform for all academicians, intellectuals, students, scholars, citizens, and people from all walks of life to come together and discuss various issues, ideas, facets of this fascinating theme. This is a small initiative from our side to make world a better place to live in. Contribute and be a part of the change.
