When it comes to anti-discrimination laws, good intentions do not always lead to positive change on the ground. This panel discussion is aimed at shedding light on particular instances where policymakers in India and Europe failed to take into consideration the social realities of particularly vulnerable groups.

The panel discussion is hosted by Junior Fellows Amit Anand, Preethi Lolaksha Nagaveni & Jasmin Beck of the Human Rights, Family & Gender Think Tank Programme.


Prof. Ruby Sibony from the University of Seville, Spain. Prof. Sibony has published both on immigration law and on gender-based violence, and she has worked with the local authorities in Andalusia to strengthen the protection of non-nationals from gender-based violence. She will provide insights into the European perspective on what the challenges are for well-meant legislative measures to translate into practice on the ground. In particular, she will enlighten us on the Spanish practice of implementing protection for immigrant women from domestic violence through specific residence permits.
