Darmiyaan Yatra 2013: An Educational Tour organized by Centre for Social Justice [Nov 22-25]; Register by Nov 15

Introduction

A 3 day exposure trip to the district of Khamman and Warangal in Andhra Pradesh, which  hosts nearly 400-500 families who have been forcefully uprooted from their homes in  Chhattisgarh, due to the ongoing conflict.

This is an attempt to expose young students/ lawyers/researchers/academicians etc to the plight of the conflict induced internally  displaced persons ( IDP).

The UN Guiding Principles on IDPs has defined IDPs as “ internally displaced persons are persons or groups of persons who have been forced or  obliged to flee or to leave their homes or places of habitual residence, in particular as a  result of or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of generalized  violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who have not  crossed an internationally recognized State border.”

This trip will bring you face to face  with people who fall into the frame of this definition, who have been deprived of  their citizenship right.

Brief Outline

The trip will start from Hyderabad on 22 November 2013 and end on 25 November 2013.

This trip will give you opportunity to dialogue not just with the victims but also with  Human Rights defenders who have been fighting endlessly for the rights of  IDPs.

The trip will allow you to examine the state and the central  laws that are so inadequate to protect the rights of this vulnerable  group, which has been conveniently been invisibilized.

We as part of the Darmiyaan group  which is a group of people who were part of Yatra held in June, 2013 wish to include more  law students who are interested in this field and work on lines of various socio legal  problems.

Our previous experience has motivated all of us to take up more socio-legal  issues through such exposure trips and groom more law students and opening lines for their  career.

Objective

♦ To understand the issues of displacement  through the conflict lens.

♦ To interact with stakeholders working with these issues.

♦ Make representations to appropriate  authority.

To begin a nationwide dialogue on conflict  induced IDPs.

Who can participate?

♦ We are looking at maximum 15 people to be  part of the exposure.

♦ Law students who are currently pursuing law from different Law Universities.

♦ Young lawyers interested in Human Right Issues and who want to work in the related field.
