GNLU Centre For Women And Child Rights: Right To Education Conclave 2.0

Table of Contents


The GNLU Centre for Women and Child Rights is a congregation of legal minds to channel the power of law to champion the causes of Women and Child Rights by encouraging and facilitating active discourse and deliberation in the field of women and child rights development. With this vision, Gujarat National Law University established the Centre for Women and Child Rights (GCWCR) on the 15th of September, 2020. The Centre integrates research, direct field action, and teaching on child rights law; it uses law and socio-legal strategies as tools for transformative social change to enable children to live with dignity. The specific aim of the Centre is to ensure social justice, human rights, and quality of life for all children and women in India, with a special focus on equitable quality education, care, protection, and justice for marginalized and excluded women and children.


The Right to Education (RTE) Conclave 2022 marked a significant milestone in the collective effort to champion the cause of education for all. Many Dignitaries graced us by their presence such as Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani & Sh. Priyank Kanoongo as chief guests. This pivotal event is beyond the conventional by incorporating paper presentations, engaging panel discussions, and innovative pitch presentations.

Building upon the success of its predecessor, RTE Conclave 2.0 is poised to deliver an even more enriching experience for participants. Meticulously designed, the event serves as a dynamic platform for robust intellectual exchange, fostering collaborative problem-solving and nurturing a shared commitment to advancing the global cause of education.

What truly sets this event apart is the emphasis on creating an immersive experience. Participants can look forward to not only informative sessions but also engaging in various recreational activities. The agenda includes pitch presentations, panel discussions, and a unique focus on experiential learning. Through the presentation of work by diverse stakeholders, informal and formal meetings, the Conclave aims to facilitate a deep dive into identifying the core motivations that drive each participant.


As a part of the pitch presentation, we welcome ideas to solve some of the biggest challenges in education from a diverse audience spanning practitioners, activists, academicians, policymakers, civil society, students from law and interdisciplinary subjects in form of a concept note of 800-1200 words.

Legal aid cells, child rights centers, social work departments, education researchers, nonprofit leaders, movement-builders, concerned government officials, journalists, faculty convenors, and motivated individuals across disciplines are encouraged to participate in this solution-oriented gathering aimed at cultivating deeper coordination across stakeholders to advance the RTE cause. We welcome submissions both in an institutional capacity (submissions as a Research Centre or a Legal Aid Committee) as well as individual capacity.
