Human Rights: Concepts, Issues and Laws

S.C. Joshi (Editor)
Synopsis "Man is born free and is everywhere in chains'. Human Rights are inherent to man as being human person. Variously known as 'Fundamental Rights' or Natural rights everybody everywhere is entitled to enjoy the privilege of Human Rights. Universal Declaration of Human Rights and subsequent all covenants on human rights, to which most of the nation-states are signatory, are attempts in the direction of upholding and ensuring the cause of human rights. Despite all the statutory provisions we come across the cases of human rights violations. This book addresses some vital issues pertaining to Human Rights, gathered under seven chapters namely - Evolution; Glimpses; Economic Development and Human Rights; Human Rights and Criminal Justice Administration; National Human Rights Commission of India; NGOs and Human Rights; Positive Action for a Humane Society. The original text of various covenants, Universal Declaration and other relevant laws is also appended to enhance the utility of work. This book will prove informative and useful to scholars, social scientists, jurists, human rights activists and general readers.
