Applications Open | eColloquium on Liberty, Democracy and Rule of Law | 25th October

eColloquium on Liberty, Democracy and Rule of Law | CCS India

The discussion surrounding the rule of law has been more or less narrowed down to the legality of the government’s actions. There has rarely been a debate on the rule of law’s substance vis-a-vis the role of constitutionalism and democracy in its functioning.

Our upcoming eColloquium will provide a platform to deliberate and reason with the idea of rule of law in connection with justice, liberty and democracy through reading the works of great legal and jurisprudential scholars like H. L. A. Hart and F. A. Hayek

Apply now for the eColloquium on Liberty, Democracy and the Rule of Law scheduled for 25th October 2020!

In our latest article, Roshan Gandhi, Director (Strategy) of City Montessori School, talks about the existential imperative of education policy in India and the need to reassess the NEP in the context of the relationship between education, democracy, and tyranny.
