Human Rights in India: Discourses and Contestations

K.S. Pavithran (Editor)

Human Rights have been the focus of study since ancient times and especially since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) by the United Nations. Since then India is a signatory to majority of human rights agreements and pacts and has been playing a major role in the United Nations in protecting and promoting human rights. However, the fact is that sizeable segments of its population in India are socially marginalised and remain excluded from basic human rights. The book is an edited volume which provides scholarly articles on human rights issues. Besides theoretical debates, the essays in this volume gives a critical understanding relating to various issues in human rights related to development, environment, climate change, water, social media and cyber world. It covers a range of contentious debates and explores the changing context of human rights and a rich analysis of the politics of today's human rights issues in India.

The book will help in disseminating knowledge of human rights and create anawareness in society. It will be highly useful to students, academics and activists in the field of human rights and in social sciences.
