Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms

Rahul Rai (Author)
Synopsis Human rights and fundamental freedoms are the foundation of justice and peace in the world, and are best maintained on the one hand by an effective political democracy, and on the other by a common understanding and observance of the human rights upon which they depend. They allow us to develop fully use human qualities, intelligence, talents and conscience, and to satisfy spiritual and other needs. The uphill task and long drawn out battle of protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms can be only won when sincere efforts are constantly made at every level--individual, family, society, nation and international. It is gratifying to note that both government and non-governmental organisations are taking necessary steps in protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms. The present volume covers the entire gamut of human rights and fundamental freedoms. It will be of great interest to teachers, scholars, students of human rights, and to all those interested in having knowledge about the scope of the fundamental human rights.

About the author

Rahul Rai

Rahul Rai is an alumni of St. Stephens’ College, New Delhi. His Selection as the Founder Director of Indian Institute of Human Rights (IIHR), New Delhi has been based on his knowledge of human rights education at postgraduate level as well as the initiatives taken by him in the process of the establishment of IIHR in December 1999 and its inauguration by Justice J.S. Verma, Chairman, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) on the occasion of Human Rights Say. Rahul rai’s contribution in contacting more than 50 universities and advising them to get themselves associated with the Indian Institute of Human Rights (IIHR) for co-sponsoring the post Graduate Programme in Human Rights will go a long way in the training in the new millennium. As the study and concern about human rights has remained largely confined to international lawyers, diplomats and statesmen, Rahul Rai has been active to see that these rights increasingly become the subjects of concern for national lawyers, activists, reformers, policy makers and other citizenry. Rahul Rai has organised and participated in many national as well as international conferences related to human rights, civil liberties, disaster mitigation, sustainable development and depolluting technologies. Besides collaborating with selected Indian universities, the author is presently working on the WIBP’s joint venture ‘international education project’ for inviting reputed British universities for offering need-based programmmes in India.
