About the Seminar
Citizenship is the status, which is given to the individuals as lawful member of a State. However, we must agree that such status is a select space of a State and every State has its own criteria to decide the qualification for citizenship. Be that as it may, the rise of globalization and the worldwide economy have presented new dimension to the customary thoughts of citizenship.
In the contemporary situation, the residents of one nation relocate to another nation because of financial, social and other such reasons. In this specific situation, the idea of human rights of the citizen is of great significance. The States are also under a commitment to maintain the human rights of the nationals as well as of each individual living inside the domain of the State independent of their citizenship status.
Objective of the Seminar
The objective of the seminar is to draw out the current state of human rights in association with citizenship in India with particular complement on the circumstance of evacuees and stateless individuals.
