“Caste – out of the shadows” – Conference: Make a statement!
The SOAS South Asia Institute in cooperation with a group of NGOs is hosting a conference on the theme of caste to be held at SOAS on the 5th September 2015.
Make a statement!
The ‘Out of the Shadows’ conference aims to engage people from a range of development organisations in a debate on the significance of caste to poverty and development in the contemporary world.
We are inviting conference participants to share thoughts on caste-based discrimination, poverty, and economic and social development by providing written statements in the pre-conference questionnaire below.
We would like to incorporate these statements, ideas and viewpoints into the conference discussions through electronic posting or wall-positing at the venue, and post-conference blogs.
In the form below we seek permission for such posting. Comments written on this form will not be shared without your permission. We encourage a free and open discussion on this important issue.
We look forward to hearing from you!
