Human Rights in India: Theory and Practice

 
A S Anand (Author) A.V. Afonso (Author)
Synopsis

The present volume which is a result of a seminar deals with only some issues and debates on the subject and hence does not claim to be a comprehensive compendium of human rights issues in India. But several issues have been raised in the volume that at one level are conceptual, and at another are specific and applicatory. Theoretical foundations of human rights are almost at the centre of all articles contained in the volume. This volume is likely to be of interest to research as well as general public interested in human rights discourse and practice in India.
