Conferences are the lifeline of academia as these promote a culture of research. Conferences also help in building partnerships and networks but more importantly they contribute towards encouraging students, teachers, and policy analysts to share ideas and boldly imagine and design research agendas. In this spirit in 2013, while preparing to celebrate the 150 years of the Forman Christian College (A Chartered University), the CPPG organized its first International Conference, with the expectation that a second would be held after two years. However, while organizing a conference may be easy but publishing the proceedings are a challenge.
