GLC Thiruvananthapuram is inviting well-researched articles for its upcoming International Seminar. Scroll down for more details!

Government Law College Thiruvananthapuram in association with the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) and Kerala State Commissionerate for Persons with Disabilities is organizing an International Seminar on Fostering Inclusivity: Empowering Differently Abled scheduled to be held on 17th-19th January 2024.

About the Institution

Approaching the legacy of one hundred and fifty years, the Government Law College, Thiruvananthapuram is one of the pioneer institutions imparting legal education in India. We aspire to establish the institute as the torchbearer in the field of legal education in the country. A temple of learning where one understands the delicate balance of law.

About IQAC

The institution is bestowed with a well-established Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) which aims towards the internalization and institutionalization of quality-enhanced initiatives. It is a facilitating and participative organ of the institution endowed with the potential to become a harbinger for assuring quality enhancement.

About the Seminar

Differently-abled persons encounter barriers due to a lack of access to justice; minimal participation in political and public life; discriminatory attitudes toward sexual health, reproductive rights and the right to family life, lack of birth registration; and lack of access to an inclusive and quality education in their own language, and encounter the effects of increasing risks and vulnerability that climate change is creating.

This International Seminar is an effort to consolidate various schemes and strategies to put forth a uniform policy globally, to foster inclusivity thereby empowering people with disability. There is a need to promote and ensure active social participation of the disabled in nation-building and global inclusivity.
