CfP: National Seminar on Changing Dimensions of the Right to Privacy by JMI, Delhi [March 25-26]: Submit by March 5

Faculty of Law, JMI is organizing a National Seminar on Changing Dimensions of the Right to Privacy in India on 25th & 26th March, 2018.

About the Seminar

The right to privacy has been interpreted as an unarticulated fundamental right under the Constitution of India. However, through various judgments over the years, Indian courts have interpreted the other rights in the Constitution as giving rise to a (limited) right to privacy primarily through Article 21, the right to life and liberty.

Right to Privacy in India has been a contentious issue in recent years and it concerns the lives of many people around the world. Right to privacy is not a constitutionally but judicially recognized right.

This Seminar endeavors to focus on the impact of declaring privacy as a fundamental right, the impact on private entities (non-tate parties) and the potential impact on the anticipated privacy law.

Objective of the Seminar

This Seminar is  an attempt to analyse the right to privacy from different perspectives and check the status of this right. The proposed objective of the seminar are:

  • To understand the various facets of Right to Privacy in India
  • To determine the scope of Right to Privacy which can be guaranteed
  • To analyse the significance of technological advancements on the restrictions on Right to Privacy
  • To analyse the effect of DNA profiling, biometric identification, etc. on the criminal
    liability on the accused.
  • To the needs of and the opportunities and dangers posed to liberty in a digital

The present seminar has been conceptualized with the basic objective of taking stock of
the progress made by India in the sphere of law, and creates a space for discussion on
all matters pertaining to legal issues concerning privacy.
