The Center for South Asian Studies at the University of Michigan is pleased to host an international conference on September 21-23, 2017: “Seeking Social Justice in South Asia.” The conference’s aim is to focus attention on stark and persistent political, economic, and social inequalities and the ongoing struggles to address them in contemporary South Asia.

The conference will bring together a group of internationally-renowned lawyers, activists, academics, and producers of media (print and multimedia) to consider a range of interconnected struggles for social justice, including religious and ethnic polarization, gender and sexuality, caste politics, minority rights, urbanization and displacement, and media and information access. Presentations will address these issues in the Bangladeshi, Indian, Pakistani, and Sri Lankan contexts.
