Human Rights in India: Prospective and Retrospective

Sudharshanam Gankidi (Editor)

In the last few decades, human rights has emerged as an important area of teaching and research. Human rights are inalienable rights of individuals irrespective of their age, caste, gender, colour, social and economic status. Such rights are violated every day in India at individual and group level, both within the family and across social systems. Human rights violation of such marginalised population, including women, children and disabled persons, often go unnoticed. On the other hand, social groups such as dalits, tribal population and masses from poor backgrounds experience social segregation and are prone to face human rights violation at a larger level. One of the fundamental reasons for this violation is insensitiveness and lack of awareness about rights of the ‘others’. State, which is supposed to protect the rights of the weakest, is also seen as a violator. It in this context the book makes an attempt to discuss about the role of judiciary, criminal justice system, police, NGOs and their developmental interventions. This book is a significant contribution to the ongoing discourse on human rights.
