Bhubaneswar: A webinar on the theme “Protecting Rights of the Marginalized during Covid” was organized and hosted by the Centre for the Sustainable Use of Natural and Social Resources (CSNR) here on Saturday.
Around around 100 interns on human rights issues attended the webinar, while legal luminaries of the country such as senior advocate Mihir Desai from Bombay High Court and distinguished member of Odisha Human Rights Commission (OHRC), Asim Amitabh Das, were speakers at the meeting.
