Amity Law School Lucknow’s National Seminar on “Right of Child & The Future of India: Don’t employ us, empower us.”
Amity Law School , Amity University Uttar Pradesh Lucknow Campus.
26th September 2016
- The proposed seminar will strike a fine balance between:
- Taking care of the protection of the children by their parents and;
- Taking extra care about the recognition of rights including legal, civil, cultural, economic rights independent of their parents.
- This seminar will focus on critical evaluation of the existing mechanism which has been put in place for the protection of children.
- As the children form the future of the country, this seminar aims at making effective child care structure after analysing the socio-economic factors which prompt then to come in conflict with law.
- This seminar will give voice to the children and enable them to feel safe by speaking for themselves and by reporting abuse, exploitation and injustice they are suffering from.
