Transdisciplinary International Conference on Navigating and Fostering the Equitable World: Rebuilding Resilience for G20

 12th & 13th September 2023 – Hybrid Mode

EXTENDED DATE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION: 30TH AUGUST, 2023

Concept Note

The culmination of G20 proceedings along with ‘University Connect’ aims to harbour an all-inclusive outcome of the G-20 summit. In a time where multilateralism has taken a beating around the world through the isolationist policies of few leaders, India is rapidly filling the gap to bring agreements to a table without conflict, directing to solve global problems that need collective effort. At this point in time, with increasing global temperatures, terrorism, border aggression, market volatilities, all tied to the impending and major crisis of Climate Change, India is taking the charge by launching major global initiatives like the International Solar alliance (ISA) and Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI).

India realizes that Multilateralism is needed more than ever before however with its conspicuous decline being replaced by self- interest policy making obstructing interconnected supply chains and information channels. The G20 is an opportunity at an opportune time to bring consensus between major countries to strengthen the global agenda and solve development challenges, climate, and energy and security challenges

G20 – University Connect

India assumed the G20 presidency on December 1, 2022, with this the G-20 forum under the Indian leadership, will witness the largest-ever participation with 43 Heads of Delegations in the final New Delhi Summit in September 2023. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas (Leave no one behind) is fused in with India’s execution of its G-20 presidency. G20 is a unique grouping accounting for 85 percent of the global GDP, 75 percent of global trade, and 65 percent of the world’s population. As the leader of the Global South; India with its indispensable role in multilateral forums like the G20 is championing the cause of being the articulate voice of the unheard nations.

Internally, the G20 Indian presidency has received unprecedented national acceptance with the help of the government’s massive outreach campaigns, educating people about India’s role in the Global order and seeking suggestions from the public to form an inclusive G-20 Agenda from India to the world. In the aftermath of the COVID pandemic; the role of specialized international forums has increased to focus on urgent development agendas; including Sustainable development, Health, Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Climate change, and Anti-corruption. Subsequently, India’s theme for its presidency is enshrined in the civilisational value system of ‘Vasudeva Kutumbakam’: One Earth, One Family, One future, with an emphasis to recalibrate the much-needed global governance for a hyper-connected world.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ensnared the nation to prepare for the G 20 summit subsequently, increasing its efficacy to solve the challenges that lie ahead for all of us. Government institutions are working tirelessly to merge their existing goals with the G20 agenda to have a comprehensive impact on the proceedings of the year-long high-level consultations and meetings being indiscriminately organised around the country. These meetings cover a wide agenda specific to development challenges in high GDP countries; Business community (B20), Civil society (C20), Labor unions (L20), Scientists (S20), Think tanks (T20), Urban cities (U20), Women (W20) and Youth (Y20) from the G20 and with recent addition by India Startups (S20). Besides the engagement groups of high-level professionals deliberating on synergies for cohesive outcomes with the G20 members’ countries, Prime Minister has also initiated a campaign to engage with students from 75 universities in approximately 56 locations across India. The intended purpose of this marathon of lectures across the nation is to engage with the youth in the G-20 process and sensitise them to the deliberation during the presidency and the impact it bears for them.

About the Conference

Transdisciplinary studies are a reflection of the changing patterns of knowledge production. Ubiquity of transdisciplinary approach is indicative of an important intellectual shift, and it represents cognitivity. To understand and formulate better laws at present and in future, a holistic approach in acquainting with other disciplines becomes indispensable. Transdisciplinary concepts have become necessary because differentiation and specialization of knowledge in discrete categories have become a law of being in the 21st century. It is time we expand our horizon beyond reductive views of the law and identify and resonate its significance in other disciplines. Legal studies must acknowledge transformation of ideas and genres both within their own discipline and beyond its borders. Transdisciplinary approach promotes the capacity to integrate knowledge and modes of thinking drawn from two or more disciplines to produce a cognitive advancement.
