As we near the first anniversary of the Navtej Johar decision, transgender persons continue to face inequality, discrimination and legal hurdles in exercising their fundamental rights. In this conference we aim to chart the way forward for the trans and intersex community in a post-Section 377 world, for the realization of rights and the guarantee of inclusivity, equality and justice.
Agenda attached here
The Centre for Law and Policy Research (CLPR) is a not-for-profit trust that was started in 2009 by Jayna Kothari and Sudhir Krishnaswamy. The Centre was established in recognition of the need to have a legal research organisation dedicated to the rule of law and defense of constitutional values.
We, at CLPR, believe that the Constitution of India is the most authoritative and comprehensive point of reference and our core purpose is to ensure that the Constitution works for everyone. We take a multidisciplinary approach towards public interest intervention and legal research which is built on an ethic of social engagement and a rigorous and independent analysis of the law. Through our work we aim to equip citizens to better evaluate their own socio-political contexts and improve access to justice to marginalised groups.
