Law, Justice and Human Rights in India is a collection of opinion editorials published between 2000 and 2020 on a range of contemporary issues—prisoners’ rights, campus violence, women’s rights, state impunity, judicial accountability, citizen engagement in law-making, and questions of discrimination against Dalits, Adivasis, persons with disabilities, and sexual and religious minorities. Reflecting upon issues of social justice and human rights, it gives insights into the Constitution and law, moving these out of the sacred, unreachable precincts of constitutional courts and into the realities of everyday life. The continuing relevance of the concerns raised in this collection will interest anyone who wishes to trace the development of human rights debates in India over the past two decades.
