Vidhi is delighted to announce the launch of the Samvidhaan Fellowship, and welcome the inaugural batch of the six Samvidhaan Fellows. The Fellowship is supported by the Azim Premji Philanthropic Initiatives and conceptualised by the Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy. The Fellowship aims to decentralise constitutional law research, and promote constitutional culture in India.
The Fellows will be working on a diverse array of topics, ranging from constitutionality of Foreigners Tribunals, to the impact of the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 on Indian Muslims; from the constitutional permissibility of a link language, to civil rights contestations central to cases filed under the caste atrocities legislation; from improving anti-discrimination law doctrine in India, to the impact of Article 371F on Sikkim.
