Dear Participant,
The ever increasing number of incidents of atrocities against Dalits has been a major issue of concern for all individuals and institutions valuing human rights of all. The brutal killing of four Dalits including a school girl at Khairlanji village of Bandara district, Maharashtra on September 29, 2006 and many such incidents that preceded and followed that incident, and a number of other incidents that have gone unreported have indeed forced us to rethink the efficacy of kind of role that the NGOs, academic institutions, police, judiciary, special commission and the media have been playing and the kind of measures to be undertaken and policies to be evolved for ensuring justice to the Dalits.
It is in this context, the Centre for Study of Social Exclusion and Inclusive Policy of the  Tata Institute of Social Sciences has decided to organize a two-day conference on “Atrocities on Dalits in Maharashtra: Emerging Issues and Challenges” during September 28 and 29, 2007. We are expecting over 60 participants comprising academicians, activists, victims and representation from police and judiciary.
This is to request you to participate in this important conference and share your thoughts and experience with us as a participant. We are hopeful getting a positive response from you. I shall send you the detailed programme schedule shortly. We are happy to inform you that we would be providing travel allowance (economy class) and accommodation for all outstation participants. 
Thanking you,
Yours sincerely,
A. Ramaiah

Conference Organizer
(Chairperson, Centre for Study of Social Exclusion & Inclusive Policy)
