About the Conference 

Insurgency within the country has been a content of discord for many States for ages. India is facing armed conflicts within its boundaries for decades and history narrates that it has only grown to the extent of horrendous contours. Insurgency is a global phenomenon in modern-day politics around the world. Politics has a greater role in pacifying the damage done to these people but it has failed in mitigating the damage and restitution of the loss.

In developing nations of the world especially South Asian and African countries, armed conflict or armed rebellion can be identified as the biggest roadblock in implementing welfare and developmental policies. Insurgency not only creates a problem for the innocent citizenry but also creates a void of opportunities for militant groups as well. Armed rebellions are often categorized as demonic and anti-social groups engaged in violence to assert their human rights, but the past has shown that it has been no good to the already deprived and marginalised group of individuals. 

Currently, India is facing an insurgency in Northern, North-eastern, Central, and Southern States where the militant groups are in direct conflict with the government. There are varied reasons throughout India for the growth of militancy but deprivation and marginalization have played a major role in the evolution of insurgency. These groups have made it difficult for the State to execute and implement welfare activities in the militant affected areas.

The phenomenon of insurgency is leading to major global issues such as hunger, loss of habitat, malnutrition, non-education, and deprivation of their human rights. The state being the parens patrie carries an obligation to protect the rights of its citizen and at the same time, it has to safeguard and find ways to deal with these groups with iron hands.

India has strict legislations such as AFSPA, UAPA & NSA etc., to deal with any kind of anti-national activity under the pretext of insurgency. These legislations are often labelled as draconian and violators of fundamentals rights of the citizens as they provide special powers to the state authorities in dealing with armed rebellions.
