Call for Papers: National Conference on ‘Right to Privacy’, New Delhi (28th Jan’18)

Legal Desire is organising a National Conference on ‘Right to Privacy’ as a flagship event of Legal Desire Summit & Awards, 2018  on 28th Jan’18 at New Delhi.

Concept Note:

On 24th August, 2017 a nine-judge bench of the Supreme Court has ruled that Indians enjoy a fundamental right to privacy that it is intrinsic to life and liberty and thus comes under Article 21 of the Indian constitution.

In its 547-page judgment privacy was declared to be a fundamental right, the Supreme Court has overruled verdicts given in the M.P. Sharma case in 1958 and the Kharak Singh case in 1961, both of which said that the right to privacy is not protected under the Indian constitution.

Concerns of privacy arise when the state seeks to intrude into the body of subjects. Corporeal punishments were not unknown to India, their abolition is of a recent vintage. Forced feeding of certain persons by the state raises concerns of privacy. The growth and development of technology has created new instruments for the possible invasion of privacy by the State, including through surveillance, profiling and data collection and processing.

Privacy is a limit on government power, as well as the power of private sector companies as if the individual permits someone to enter the house, it does not mean that others can enter the house. Personal data is used to make very important decisions in our lives. Personal data can be used to affect our reputations; and it can be used to influence our decisions and shape our behavior. It can be used as a tool to exercise control over us. And in the wrong hands, personal data can be used to cause us great harm. We organized this conference to discuss the different aspects of right to privacy.
