Webinar on Re-imagining Human Rights
The Centre for International Law and Relations organized a National Webinar titled “Re-imagining Human Rights in India” to celebrate Human Rights Day. The opening remarks were given by Prof. (Dr) R. Venkata Rao, Chairman VSLLS and former Vice-Chancellor NLSIU, Bangalore. Mr. Ravi Nair, Executive director, South Asia Human Rights Documentation Centre delivered the lecture on the theme “Re-imagining Human Rights in India” and was of the view that the need begs for not only reimagining but also reinforcement and restrengthening the idea, concept, and implementation of Human Rights in India. Human Rights require a lot of empathy at the individual level along with sympathy from a human perspective while viewing it. The sensitivity must be in respect of how one enjoys their rights while not encroaching on others. Prof. Dr. Rashmi Salpekar, Dean, VSLLS gave the vote of thanks.
