The Centre  for Human rights and Legal Pluralism and the Annie MacDonald Langstaff Lecture Series welcome Madhav Khosla, PhD Candidate, Harvard University, who will talk about "Equality and the Indian Supreme Court: The Naz Foundation Case."

On December 2013, the Supreme Court of India declared the criminalization of homosexual relations was constitutional (Suresh Kumar Koushal v. Naz Foundation). In this talk, Madhav Khosla will discuss the decision and unpack its reasoning.

This talk was originally slated for Feb. 14, and had to be rescheduled. For additional information, please contact Dr. Vrinda Narain (vrinda.narain [at] mcgill.ca).
