Attendees can expect to see top government officials discuss new policy directions with a number of leading minds from the professional world, academia, development experts, the media and a host of celebrities with vivid experiences of the issues at hand. Speakers have been curated and panels organized by all three knowledge partners, UCL, GU and ICG. Through their academic leads they have contributed towards the programming of Difficult Dialogues 2018 and will help Difficult Dialogues in producing policy papers aimed at influencing public policies and decision making.
Socio-political filmmakers Prakash Jha and Ketan Mehta, actors Nandita Das, Manisha Koirala and Deepa Sahi; LGBT rights activists Laxmi Narayan Tripathi and Ashok Row Kavi, women's rights activists Flavia Agnes, Zakia Soman, Vrinda Grover, Urvashi Butalia, Ritu Menon; Maharashtra’s first woman IPS officer Meeran Chaddha Borwankar; Rajya Sabha MP and former Union Minister for Women and Child Development Renuka Chowdhury will all share their views at the event.
NGOs Sneha from Mumbai, PLAN India, PHIA and the Consortium for Street Children are also organizing panel discussions at Difficult Dialogues.
Filmmaker Nandita Das will be on a panel discussing the ‘MeToo’ hashtag message to raise awareness about sexual assault and harassment which lead to an overwhelming response on social media.
She said, “The #metoo movement has created more than catharsis for women. (It is) a space for truth to come out. While the initial reaction was ‘finally the time has come,’ it has gone on to become more nuanced, adding many other perspectives to the conversation. At the unique conference, Difficult Dialogues, I look forward to digging deeper into the issues of violence and silence. Together we hope to raise many unanswered questions… why it took so long, from here to where and why this deafening silence in India?”
