The NUJS Law Review is pleased to invite contributions for its annual Special Issue for 2013-14 “Surveillance, Censorship & Indian Law: Mapping the Field”
A spate of recent events, such as the debate surrounding Section 66A of the Information Technology Act and the Intermediaries Guidelines under it, the calls against decriminalizing speech offences (such as sedition, obscenity or defamation) in both traditional and new media, the debate around the Central Monitoring System, the NAT GRID and CCTNS in India(and the Snowden affair globally) have thrown the effect of state action (including legislation) on the fundamental rights to free speech, privacy and due process into sharp relief. For more information see the Events Page.
