Concept Note

Human rights are a generic term as it embraces civil rights, civil liberties and social, economic and cultural rights. It can be said that these rights that all people have by virtue of being human are human rights. Rights being immunities denote that there is a guarantee that certain things cannot or ought not to be done to a person against his will. An individual can seek human rights only in an organized community i.e. a state where the civil social order exists. No one can imagine invoking them in a state of anarchy where there is hardly any right to a citizen. Area of Constitutional Governance & Human Rights are required to be focused and shall be discussed its challenges and with outcome through the International Conference.

Human rights are at the heart of the constitutional order of a modern State, not only determining relationships between the individual, groups and the State, but also permeating State structures, and decision-making and oversight processes. As a consequence, a bill of rights constitutes an integral part of a modern constitution. At the same time, gaps in the implementation of human rights at the national and international level, whether individual or where appropriate collective rights, often originate from shortcomings in the area of constitutional law.

As the highest law of a country, the constitution is at the centre of the political and social life of the country and defines the relationship between the State and the society, and between the different functions of the State. A country may have a constitution, but not necessarily “constitutionalism”. Constitutional governance simply means ‘governance’ according to the constitution. It recognizes the need for the government insisting upon limitation being placed upon government powers. It envisages check and balances and put power of the legislature & executive under the restrains. Otherwise, it would jeopardize freedom of people and lead to an authoritarian oppressive government.

Furthermore, the Constitution acts as grundnorm which reflects the nature of the relationship between the institutions of government and the society and once the principles and duties join hands with rights; the State becomes a welfare state. Due to the welfare nature of the State, it becomes the indispensable duty of the state to deal with its citizens to ensure proper functioning of the welfare machinery and do the oiling when required. The essence of good governance lies in respecting the human rights of individuals in order to strike a near perfect balance between development and empowerment. In that sense, human rights and individual development share a common vision and serve an overall purpose of development of all. Human rights are inherent in all the individuals irrespective of their caste, religion, sex and nationality. These rights are essential for the entire individual society as they are consonant with freedom and dignity and are conducive to physical, moral, social and spiritual welfare.

This conference seeks to lay an impact on the various challenges while implementing human rights in an effective manner keeping in mind.
