ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
As said by Martin Luthar King Jr. that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”, and justice is necessary for the survival of human civilization. Intending to secure justice, human civilization devised several incentives through the development of jurisprudence. Such incentives were incorporated through legislation at all levels including International, Regional, and Domestic paradigms. However, with the advent of human civilizations, the meaning and concept of justice started expanding through the alteration of power across different sections of the human fraternity and such expansion led to several social, political, economic, cultural, and environmental implications. Further, the concept of human rights has also expanded to a significant extent wherein contemporary times, instances of human rights violations are increasing in number as per legal connotations are concerned. Several global developments like cross-border terrorism, cyber-attack, Refugee Crisis, Environmental Degradation, etc. have not only influenced the international legal developments securing justice but also the regional and domestic justice delivery systems. At the same time, several identity-related matters, new methods for committing offenses with technological advancements, crises amongst indigenous peoples, etc. are influencing the domestic systems of justice delivery in the civilized nations. Therefore, there arises a need to have a deliberate discussion on the aspects of access to justice considering the contemporary needs of human civilization. The Conference shall attempt to provide a platform for such a scholarly discussion on the very day of International Day of Justice.
