Roundtable discussion on India's recent Supreme Court ruling on privacy rights with Dr. Sarojini Nadimpally

Privacy is not constitutionally guaranteed in India. But the new, landmark Supreme Court ruling on extending privacy, emerging from public litigation against biometric information on state-issued identity cards, has widespread implications for progressive developments in India right from  queer rights and bioethics. Join a discussion co-sponsored by SAI and led by Dr. Sarojini Nadimpally on what privacy rights mean in the current Indian political context.

Dr. Sarojini Nadimpally is a public health researcher and Scientist in Delhi, and a leading feminist bioethicist in India. Through the Delhi-based non-profit  SAMA, which she co-founded in 1999, Sarojini has led several studies on public health, reproductive technologies and surrogacy, ethics in clinical trials, access to medicines especially for marginalised communities, right to health in India's conflict zones (specifically, Kashmir, Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh). She is the co-organiser of the forthcoming 14th World Congress on Bioethics to be held in India in 2018.

Food will be served.
