CONCEPT NOTE:

Through this Conference, we aim to highlight the gap created between genders and how this gap in many ways violates Human Rights,
as a result of which there comes difficulties in providing Legal Aid. This International Conference on Human Rights and Gender Justice is organized with an aim to bring together academicians, students, human
rights activists, and other intellectuals on one platform to discuss the various issues concerning human rights and to discuss the measures to curb such issues.

Knowledge Steez has been actively organizing social awareness and legal aid workshops throughout the country and this conference will be the 4th edition of it. Through this conference we aim to provide the participants with an option to join us in our campaigns and hence the conference will not merely be limited to on-table discussions, rather it will provide various options to implement the discussions on the field.

THEME:

Human rights are the basic rights and freedom that belong to every person in the world, from birth to death. They apply regardless of where you are from, what you believe, or how you choose to live your life. They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted – for example, if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security. But sadly due to the increasing number of gender inequality, and since these basic rights are based on shared values like dignity, fairness, equality, respect, and independence, there arises another problem of providing legal aid to
everyone. These values are defined and protected by law. This Conference aims to bring together innovative academics and industrial experts in these
fields to a common forum and also envision to deliberate on feasible approaches to the above-mentioned facets for better Development and
Implementation of future Laws and policies for the stakeholders.
