On 23rd and 24th April 2021, Justice Adda in a partnership with the India Office of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, organised an online conference on Plural Ideas of Justice: Stories, Narratives and Experiences from India.
The conference explored ideas of justice that emerge from different and diverse methods of conflict resolutions. This included but was not limited to conflict resolution practices seeking justice through digital platforms or in the form of protests or through community-based forums such as collectives, religious tribunals etc. We were interested in understanding what these spaces tell us in terms of their approach to what we understand as law and justice. Could we have a more plural idea of justice beyond courts and formal law?
The takeaways from the conference are presented in the form of a report, a video and visual scribes that document and share the different conversations that emerged from the conference.
