Indian Democracy At Work (IDAW) is organizing a webinar on ‘Rule of Law in the 21st Century’ to stimulate discourse on the challenges and possible solutions for ensuring rule of law in the Indian constitutional framework.
Indian Democracy At Work is an annual conference series jointly organized by the Foundation for Democratic Reforms, Indian School of Business (Bharti Institute of Public Policy) and the University of Hyderabad (Department of Political Science), with the objective to facilitate dialogue on our democracy and the resolve to provide a launchpad for ideas. The theme for the second edition of the conference to be held in February 2021 is Rule of Law.
About the Webinar
Rule of law is the bedrock of constitutional governance and democratic society. While we have normative rule of law, in practice there are serious, and often crippling distortions. On one hand, fair, speedy and efficient settlement of disputes at an affordable cost is critical for mutual trust and economic growth.
Equally significantly, maintenance of public order while preserving constitutional liberties is at the heart of a harmonious society and democratic system.
This webinar is being organized on 2nd January 2021 to set the tone for the Annual Conference on ‘Rule of Law’ scheduled to be held in the last week of February 2021.
