Hidayatullah National Law University, Raipur organizes a two-day National Conference on Tribal Transition in India: Issues, Challenges, and the Road Ahead scheduled on 26-27 November 2021. The event is being organized by the HNLU, Raipur Chhattisgarh in collaboration with the Tribal Research and Training Institute, Government of Chhattisgarh, and Thakur Pyarelal State Institute of Panchayat and Rural Development.
This conference is open for academicians, Judges, Researchers, Professionals, Practitioners, Students of law and allied social sciences, and other stakeholders to submit and present their research to advance the discourse. Participation is also open for interested pupils who wish to attend the panel discussions by subject matter experts.
The conference focuses on how tribal identity has experienced numerous changes and challenges. Even after seventy years of planned development, the financial state of tribes has not improved much and tribal regions are considered as underdeveloped in our country. Development measures in the tribal regions should consist of bringing harmony among safeguarding ancestral identity, culture, and qualities while expanding and guaranteeing their admittance to standard educational facilities, wellbeing, and vocation. Feeble land records, destitution, ignorance, and exploitation have brought about persistent drainage of assets thereby prompting the pauperization of tribal communities.
