Call for Papers: International Gender Justice Conference on the occasion of International Women's Day, March 17

The Patel Law College, Bengaluru, Karnataka in collaboration with Aequitas Victoria Research Centre, Bihar as part of the celebration of International Women's Day is organizing International Conference (Hybrid) on the topic "Prospects and Challenges in Enforcing Gender Justice in the Contemporary New World Order: A Multidisciplinary Approach" at Patel Law College, Kariyammana Agrahara, Bellandur PO, Bengaluru, Karnataka-560103 on March 17.





ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

As Ban Ki-moon stated, “Achieving gender equality requires the engagement of women and men, girls and boys. It is everyone’s responsibility.” Recognizing this responsibility, efforts by way of this Conference have been made to reconcile academic discussion in the process of theory building and analyzing the transformations that the concept of gender justice has undergone over the last few decades at the global level. The concept of gender justice ensures gender equality in all aspects related to human development within society. However, the parameters for ensuring gender justice and their significance in the contemporary phase of sustainable development have evolved through different phases and across different sections of ideologies. It has become of utmost importance to analyze such evolutionary and transforming developments to understand the different dimensions of gender-based ideologies to promote gender justice. Therefore, ways for addressing the conflicts between the divergent analogies of gender-based concepts and the gap that exists between policies aiming for gender equality and the achievement of their objective, in reality, are required to be identified. In addition, the diversity of cultural attributes across different societies has given different meanings to the concepts of gender and gender justice as a result of which a uniform understanding of such concepts becomes necessary for adopting a holistic and consolidated approach to counter the multidimensional issues of gender-based inequalities. Considering all these requirements, this Conference is expected to provide a platform for academic discussions on the various aspects of gender justice in the contemporary world.
