Call for Papers : UGC Sponsored National Seminar on ETHNIC DIVERSITY IN THE NORTH EASTERN STATES AND PROBLEMS OF SOCIAL AND POLITICAL UNREST

0

ABOUT:

Ethnic diversity and ethnic conflicts are two burning issues of the North Eastern states of India at present. The root cause of this problem is the assertion of identity and superiority by various ethnic groups in the region over the rest of the society. It has led to social insecurity, disharmony in the region finally posing a threat to the National integration and National security of our country. We hope the seminar will provide the members from different fields of study, especially the academicians, researchers, scholars, media persons an opportunity to arrive at a consensus regarding the problem through interaction and discussion. The outcome of the seminar will greatly help the society and the government to address these burning issues in a more effective and pragmatic way.
