About the Programme

A 2-Week Capacity Building Programme on Comparative Public Law and Hindu Philosophy: Research and Teaching Dimensions in 21st Century India are being organized by the Centre for Comparative Public Law, Himachal Pradesh National Law University, Shimla in association with the Indian Council of Social Science Research, New Delhi.

The emphasis of the two weeks programme, is, intended to ignite and initiate serious academic debate and to prepare young faculties and researchers for the study of Indian legal philosophy and public law. It is our belief and confidence behind the initiative that the Constitution of India and the constitutional precepts may appropriately be understood in the context of and sufficient background knowledge of ancient Hindu philosophy.

Comparativism or comparative methods of understanding (of law, and legal institutions) has become a new academic canon in a globalizing world, where institutional arrangements, as well as normative/ theoretical elements, are increasingly seen to be universalizable. Frequent examples are found in the discussions on important public issues, policy statements, and decisions of the courts. Prof. Ludwig Ehrlich observed, in 1921, that, “…it (is) indispensable to utilize the experience of mankind in various states and at various times, it would appear even more important to adopt the same procedure on a scientific basis now that developments in every country reflect immediately upon conditions in other countries”.
