Message from the Vice Chancellor Prof Yogesh Singh SBSC G20 Conference
G20 Conference Live


In the post-pandemic global scenario, with India’s intrinsic strength that is aiding her emerging role as the global leader, India, with her G20 presidency this year, is standing at the crossroads with respect to pertinent decisions regarding herself and the world. The G20 presidency offers a valuable opportunity for India to apprehend and anticipate the multilateral impetus to decisions that will have far-reaching consequences, giving a new direction to the existing world order. Hence, the time is ripe for serious deliberations by different stakeholders on various facets of our shared existence and the possibility of ushering into a new and holistic world order.

Shaheed Bhagat Singh College (University of Delhi) takes this opportunity to invite papers for presentations on topics related to G20 in an international conference on ‘Resilient Approaches for New World Order’. We encourage participants from across countries to bring forth their peerless approaches to momentous issues of our times and discuss resilient, innovative, and practical strategies for dealing with them. There is an urgent need for discussion about the dilemmas that a country and her people face in the current times with respect to various aspects of their ecosystem. We need to understand why some of the issues have not garnered the attention that they deserve. The world is undergoing tremendous changes and we need to understand the future world order that could better align with our goals. We need to envision resilient methods that we can adopt for Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam or One Earth, One Family, One Future encapsulating India’s vision to foster international cooperation, focusing on inclusive growth, digital transformation, and climate action for a brighter future for all.

We, as a constituent College of the University of Delhi, feel strongly about the urgent importance of holding serious deliberations on and engaging critically with issues concerning G20.
