Date: 9th February, 2015 (Monday)

Venue: Room No.1, Department of Political Science, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Delhi (Opp. Daulat Ram College)

The talk aims to look at the issue of sexual harassment in Delhi University and the laws pertaining to it. Last year, the University of Delhi scrapped its earlier sexual harassment policy Ordnance XV-D and brought in a new policy on sexual harassment in accordance with the new Women at Workplace Act, 2013. This session aims to look at the effects of this change in policy on the very definition of sexual harassment, the definition of the victim, the jurisdiction of this law and the composition of committees in Delhi University. It will look at the implications on what has been the practice for the last several years since the Ordnance XV-D was implemented and what this new policy does to that history.
