Submission Guidelines
  1. Submissions must adhere to our standard guidelines which can be accessed here.
  2. Submissions will be judged on the following criteria: Originality of the idea, contribution towards to the literature on the issue, and the language employed. We prefer to publish under-covered or novel perspectives to the issue.
  3. Since the blog posts are typically under 1500 words, authors are encouraged to write on a specific aspect of the sub-theme as opposed to a comprehensive approach. For instance, a post exclusively analyzing the right to the internet in the context of India’s international obligations will be preferred over a post summarizing the problem of internet shutdowns in India.
  4. The above-mentioned sub-themes are indicative in nature and authors at liberty to write on any other issue that relates to the current ‘law and order’ problems in India.
  5. Deadline for sending entries for the Symposium is Feb 15, 2020.

Note: Although this call is exclusively for the symposium articles, our regular submissions on rolling basis remain open.
