In this article, Allen Benny Mathews & Samarth Singh shed light on the Indian Armed Forces’ exclusionary policy against homosexuals, in light of decriminalization of Section 377 of Indian Penal Code under Navtej Singh Johar v. Union of India. The authors have provided a comparative analysis of policies adopted by armed forces in other nations and have discussed mechanisms how these policies can be implemented in India. Several important excerpts on homosexuality ranging from ancient Indian history to colonial military history in India have been discussed further, in order to explain sociological factors pertinent to the matter at hand.

In the article Desegregating Equality: Towards A Right to Inclusive Education For Children With Disabilities, Sanjana Srikumar argues that the framework of right to education of children with disabilities must be adequately considered under the right to education and right to equality and not as a separate category of education. To drive this point home, she has discussed the “Doctrine of Separate but Equal” and further relied on jurisprudence from US Supreme Court judgements and International covenants to substantiate her argument.

The paper then draws a comparison on right to inclusive education between Indian legal framework and concludes that the State has positive obligations to ensure meaningful inclusion.
