The Centre for Cyber Laws at National Law University Delhi is launching its ‘Web-Series’, a monthly online series of lectures on various issues relating to cyber laws from April 30, 2022.
About the Centre
The Centre for Cyber Laws, NLUD has been established to understand the socio-legal issues related to ever evolving cyberspace. Cyberspace is infinite and has potential to grow and evolve infinitely. The issues related to cyberspace are also evolving with the advancement of information technology.
The global IT revolution and the emergence of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, e-commerce industry, new form of currency, issues pertaining to the governance of cyberspace and more particularly the post covid-19 new world order have necessitated the need to focus on the legal research pertaining to new kinds of cybercrimes.
They all shape the future of human civilization and legal issues pertaining to it.
About the Web-Series
The Centre for Cyber Laws, NLUD is is launching first edition of its web-series on “Women Safety in Cyberspace”.
With the fast growing reach of the internet, cybercrimes against women are on the rise and women have been drastically victimized in the cyberspace. Some perpetrators try to defame women by sending obscene emails, stalking women by using chat rooms, websites, etc, developing pornographic videos where women are depicted in compromising positions.
This advent of technology has led to the emergence of cyber violence against females of all age groups which is posing a problem at the global level as it causes threat to the security, dignity and privacy of a human being as a whole. This portrays that the cyber violence committed against women is gender specific and affects only females.
The Centre is organizing the first lecture under this 1st Edition of Web-Series, titled ‘In conversation with Karnika Seth on the theme of Women’s Safety in Cyberspace‘, which is scheduled at 3 PM on April 30, 2022.
