The First Round Table Conference

Topic 1: Constitutional Reforms of India

Topic 2: Societal Predisposition with Respect to the Civil Obedience Movement

The Indian Subcontinent, as it was known as the Golden Bird during the times of the British empire had long been a hotbed of political and social conflict in the 20th century. With the onset of World War I, it was further engulfed in political social and economic upheaval. In the aftermath of the Great War and the rise of Gandhi, this committee focuses on the state of reform needed for the nation and its constitution which was at the time governed by the British crown. The First Round Table, which was held in London, was a special body formed under the instructions of the British parliament to take measure of the recent turmoil in India and the great impact it had on all parts of the world. To understand the RTC, one must look at the conditions on the ground with special emphasis on the rise of the Indian national congress and the civil disobedience movement. We will be looking at the constitutional reform of India and the societal predispositions with respect to the civil obedience movement and regional conflicts. The Civil Disobedience Movement not only led to a huge impact on the economy of the British crown out of India but also showed the Empire that Indians had started a solid resistance against the regime. The committee will therefore focus on the reimagining of a new India which was at the time one of the most important colonies of the empire on which the sun never set.
