Manjula Pradeep in UN meet on caste discrimination

Navsarjan Trust director Manjula Pradeep participated in a high-level meeting of United Nations (UN) experts and activists in Geneva from September 28 to October 3, held to decide on moving towards a “more structured mechanism against caste-based discrimination” in countries such as India and other South Asian countries. Among those who participated included UN special rapporteurs and chairpersons of various Human Rights Councils. The meeting decided to fan out to different countries, where caste discrimination is rampant, and see how things are, and whether there is effective implementation of laws seeking to end to caste-based discrimination.
