SECOND CONFERENCE ON GNH AND LAW
THIMPHU, BHUTAN
NOVEMBER 11-14, 2020:

 

JSW Law has engaged in a multi-year exploration on the topics of Gross National Happiness (GNH), sustainable development, and the law.  In 2018, we hosted an international conference on GNH and the Law, with speakers and attendees from across Bhutan and around the world. To continue our research efforts in this field, we are planning a second conference to bring together scholars interested in the relationship between GNH and the law. The conference participants are expected to present and deliberate on numerous areas of law in relation to GNH. The conference is entitled “Second Conference on GNH and the Law”. The second conference will be hosted by JSW Law in Bhutan from 11-14 November 2020 to coincide with both Bhutan’s Constitution Day and GNH Day. At the conference, participants will present final versions of their papers. Selected papers, after a thorough editorial review, will be published in JSW Law’s first volume of “GNH and the Law Journal.”

GNH was adopted as Bhutan’s multidimensional development strategy in the 1970s by the Fourth King, His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck. Since its adoption, the concept of GNH has undergone innovative changes through professionalization (through research and academic discourses). GNH as a development strategy is nationally institutionalised and practically implemented through the development of relevant policy framework and institutions. GNH framework is aimed at promoting the happiness of the citizens. It recognises happiness as the ultimate end of human life. Happiness in GNH context, however, is a combination of both subjective and objective wellbeing of the individual, seeing happiness as the relational concept. Happiness as the state of virtuous embodied being – meaning it is not merely a state of mind but also state of being – combination of both mental and physical actions – virtuous mental and physical activity. In other words, happiness is more than seeking only material or subjective wellbeing and hedonic pleasure.
