Social Justice being the foundation of the Indian society as well as the Constitution. This seminar aims to first and foremost sensitizing people belonging to various sections of society on aspects relating to victim compensation.
Furthermore, it is an effort to reflect and examine all issues relating to provisions for victim compensation and restorative Justice and finally to come up with solutions to these issues.
It is an attempt to address and study issues such as the liability of the state, the problems faced by the victims and whether or not victim compensation be provided?
Since awareness of laws and access of justice remains dismal., this seminar aims to raise awareness in this regard.
