Special Interactive  Public Session on 
The Rights of Nonhuman Species (9th Feb, JNU)
 
as part of the 
ICSSR/SCDR/JNU 
National Capacity Building Workshop
5-18 February
 
You are invited to 
a discussion on the rights of nonhuman species whose mass annihilation during disasters such as fire, floods, earthquakes, landslides and hurricanes etc. Whatever happened in Kaziranga and whatever keeps happenning in the recurrent floods in Bihar in known to all.......................
 
There is no reason to ask, what justifies the need for this policy since nonhuman species share this earth with the stronger species 'human' as their intrinsic right.There is no exaggerated emotion to be discussing this theme as a core policy area for the government.
 
However, several hurdles have to be crossed in this debate, such as  human intransigence, greed, tenaciousness, ignorance and insensitivity. Large human communities are interdependent upon nonhuman species for livelihood, for employment and for emotional needs. Many Asian religions treat them at par with  human beings. Then why this absence of a holistic policy for protecting them in disaster studies ?
