Tackling Caste Discrimination Through Law
As part of its Discrimination and Intersectionality project, CLPR organized a lawyers’ learning session at Ernakulam, Kerala, in association with the Kerala High Court Advocates Association and three CSO workshops (Madurai, Hyderabad & Ernakulam). The focus of these workshops was on a better understanding of the caste discrimination laws in India which are mainly the The SC & ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 1989, the Protection of Civil Rights Act 1955 and the Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Act 2013. We had eminent resource persons including Martin Macwan and Bezwada Wilson speaking on the challenges in implementation of the law. Please find their videos here.
