About the International Conference- Concept note

Human rights are "commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being." Human rights are thus conceived as universal  and egalitarian which are applicable to everyone and everywhere. These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in local, regional, national, and international law. The doctrine of human rights in international practice, within international law, global and regional institutions, in the policies of states and in the activities of non-governmental organizations, has been a cornerstone of public policy around the world. According to Section 2(1) (d) of Protection of Human Rights Act 1993, means the rights relating to life, liberty, equality and dignity of the individual guaranteed by the constitution or embodied in the International Covenants and enforceable by Courts of India. The recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. 
The conference intends to make a contribution to a future-oriented discourse that underpins the relevance of human rights to all of us. The human rights agenda of the next decades will be shaped by global trends which will have an impact on each and every human being: urbanization, digitalization, climate change, demographic changes. In these processes, human rights are more essential than ever – as a stabilizing factor for effective rule of law, as a concept against social exclusion, as an important driver for sustainable security, as a guarantor and creator of justice and equality in a spirit of solidarity.
International conference on ‘Emerging Trends of Human Rights Violations: Contemporary Socio-Legal Issues’ will provide opportunities to understand the local and global issues regarding human rights. The conference will identify the human rights development in the last few decades, its challenges and emerging issues.
The sub-themes of the conference will explore the various socio-legal issues through the human right perspective and also understand their relationship, challenges. 
All over the world, people experience the negative effects of environmental degradation ecosystems decline, including water shortage, fisheries depletion, natural disasters due to deforestation and unsafe management and disposal of toxic and dangerous wastes and products. Indigenous peoples suffer directly from the degradation of the ecosystems that they rely upon for their livelihoods. Climate change is exacerbating many of these negative effects of environmental degradation on human health and wellbeing and is also causing new ones, including an increase in extreme weather events and an increase in the spread of malaria and other vector born diseases. These facts clearly show the close linkages between the environment and the enjoyment of human rights and justify an integrated approach to environment and human rights. 
Nowadays the world is digitalized. Technology has represented a way to strengthen human rights. It allows individuals to exercise their freedom of expression. But technology also means that individual’s human rights are exposed to unprecedented risks, caused by the transition of these rights to the digital field. 
Human rights are universal and apply to everyone. They establish that all human beings, irrespective of country, culture and context, are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Democracy policy includes general elections, measures to strengthen and protect the individual’s opportunities for influence, and measures to promote and guarantee respect for human rights.  
Persons with disabilities are entitled to exercise their civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights on an equal basis with others under all the international treaties. Persons with disabilities face discrimination and barriers that restrict them from participating in society on an equal basis with others every day. They are denied their rights to be included in the general school system, to be employed, to live independently in the community, to move freely, to vote, to participate in sport and cultural activities, to enjoy social protection, to access justice, to choose medical treatment and to enter freely into legal commitments such as buying and selling property. The protection guaranteed in other human rights treaties, and grounded in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, should apply to all. Persons with disabilities have, however, remained largely ‘invisible’, often side-lined in the rights debate and unable to enjoy the full range of human rights. 
Every company in every industry sector has human rights impacts and responsibilities.  As demonstrated companies can impact the entire range of human rights issues positively or negatively, including discrimination, sexual harassment, health & safety, freedom of association and to form unions, rape, torture, freedom of expression, privacy, poverty, food and water, education and housing. An increasing number of companies are taking positive steps to promote human rights.  But the daily news of abuse cases by companies demonstrates that much remains to be done. So we need o discussed this issue in the context of Business and human rights.
