About the Round Table on ‘Liberty’

The CPSLR, NUALS is hosting an International Web Conference on “Liberty” from August 12-14. The Round Table on “Liberty” is hosted, in association with Students For Liberty, an international educational non-profit organization, as an extension of the same to pitch-in academically and legally advanced civil discourse on the subject matter. The idea of liberty for an individual can depend on a variety of factors and one’s background. It can stem from social issues like class and caste struggle and economic aspects like labour movements and freedom from crony capitalism. It can even branch out into environmentalism and gender studies.

Attaining liberty for an individual or a class of individuals is the center of various political, philosophical and legal principles. With these sub-themes in mind, bring clarity to your knowledge by attending the international virtual Round Table on Liberty. The Round Table will end with the release of the flagship Kochi Charter on Liberty.


E-Certificate of Participation, from CPSLR-NUALS, will be provided for each session to all attendees based on the information provided in the Registration Form.
