At a seminar organised by Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies (BILS) on Saturday, participants presented a holistic approach to the issue of migration, an issue which has internationally gained relevance. Having the theme ‘Migration and Regional Development in India’, the seminar saw participation from nearly 60 members from across the country.
“The seminar aims to discuss the implications of domestic and international migrations on India involving all dimensions- social, cultural, economic and political. The process of migration has both positive and negative consequences,” Kamalakshy K, faculty-in-charge and assistant professor BILS told DH.
The paper presentations included subjects like ‘International migrations and its impact on economic and social development in India’, ‘Inter-state migration and regional disparities’, ‘Migration and urban transition in India’, ‘Impact of migration on the Fiscal policy of India’ and ‘Judicial response on illegal migration and deportation’.
“This is the second national seminar organised by BILS. Focussing on the relevant topics of the day it aims to give a holistic approach to the problem. Since the paper presenters come from different parts of the country it helps in analysing the situation better,” she added.
