About the Conference

Ensuring basic human rights of the vulnerable section of society are the cardinal principles of rule of law. The most affected and vulnerable section of the society is children, not to mention their plight during internal disturbances, violence and conflict-like situations. One of the challenges the contemporary world faces today is ensuring the basic human rights of children.

The International Human Rights regime relating to children as dealt with under the UNCRC is inclusive of the concerns of the international community to address the rights of children. However, there is a need to verify whether there is compliance with international obligations by the governments. The increasing pattern of human rights abuses and exploitation of children in the form of child labour, drug abuse, sexual exploitation, trafficking, pornography, etc., is worrisome.

There are national legislation in place to address these issues in India. However, there is a need to deliberate upon the efficiency of the existing legal system to deal with issues relating to the violation of child rights. It is pertinent to note that the worldwide spread of COVID-19 has affected children and their rights which are guaranteed under various international instruments significantly and the need to explore the legal effects and efficiency of these laws becomes the need of the hour.

Keeping in mind the deliberations and growing concerns of Child Rights, this One-day E- Conference will provide a platform to the scholars, students, academicians, and other luminaries to deliberate upon the pressing issues to assess and take stock of the protection of child rights regime under the UNCRC as well as under various laws, statutes, policies and schemes being in implementation in India.
