International Conference on Liberalization and Globalization: Changing Legal Paradigm
National Law School of India University is going to organize an International Conference on "Liberalization and Globalization: Changing Legal Paradigm".
Date: 14th - 16th July, 2016
Venue: National Law School, Training Centre, Bengaluru, Karnataka
India went through the process of liberalization, privatization, and globalization of its economic policies in 1991, and has undergone vast changes in its legal and economic landscape since the early 1990s. With this opening up of the economy completing 25 years in 2016, the occasion is ripe to examine its impact on India - specifically on the various laws enacted and amended subsequent to liberalization.
Further, this process, which was undertaken by economies the world over in phases prior to and alongside the formation of the WTO, has itself, experienced a change in its meaning and implications. What began as a move to provide greater market access as part of WTO commitments, has now expanded in scope to include integration of markets for goods, services, and investments, on an unprecedented scale and through conventional as well as unconventional channels. This has brought about a significant transformation in the interface between economics and law, and the glass through which commercialization and legislation is viewed.
The Conference focus will be on 'Liberalization and Globalization: Changing Legal Paradigm' with possible sub themes such as:
- Alternate Dispute Resolution: Success and failures
- Changing Role of Government to Regulatory Governance, especially with Privatization
- Constitutional Response to Economic Liberalization: Changing dimension of 'State'
