Theme: Contemporary Legal Challenges to the Rule of Law in the 21st Century
Rule of Law has been the touchstone of human civilization over the centuries for social interactions and transactions between human beings through the prisms of equality and justice. Within the discourse of rule of law, States have sought to harmonize distinct interest groups to retain political continuum and relevance. However, with the last century bringing unprecedented and permanent changes in human society, the State has per se struggled to retain its authority over subsequent and hostile constituencies. The 21st century has continued these changes in an exponential manner and the concept of the Rule of Law is placed in a gordian knot dilemma. Artificial intelligence, gender fluidity, and climate change are terms unfamiliar to previous generations but have become part of the lingua franca in contemporary times. States which fail to engage in emergent glocal phenomena are bound to face challenges within their respective legal systems which threaten existing norms based on the Rule of Law.
Scholarly submissions are solicited from scholars, academicians, and practitioners to contribute critical articles within the framework of these challenges to the Rule of Law on the following suggested sub-themes –
· Criminalization and Decriminalization of Social Media Content
· Artificial Intelligence as the Inventor/Creator of Intellectual Property
· Jurisprudence of Sentient Beings Rights
· Gender Fluidity and Human Rights
