About Government Law College, Thiruvananthapuram

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.

About IQAC

The institution is bestowed with a well-established Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) which aims towards 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.

Consequently, a system-wide reform is required to strengthen national and International policies and legal systems to ensure that all differently-abled persons can access justice through quality education, employment, and disaster risk reduction programs. It is also pertinent to warrant that these policies do not exacerbate discrimination, but rather promote access to mainstream and inclusive programs.

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.
