This book is an outcome of a two-day international conference convened to discuss the changing notion of human rights from different perspectives. While focusing on the increasing relevance of human rights in an era of globalization, the book analyses the various legal-political, socio-economic, gender, ecological and international dimensions of this issue. From the large number of papers presented at the conference, sixteen articles have been selected for this volume. These are presented in four parts: namely, politico-legal, socio-economic, ecological and gender, and the transnational. The introductory section presents the major issues and concerns highlighted by the editors and carries the keynote address by Professor Yogesh Atal. Written by both young and veteran social scientists, the book presents a unique combination of theoretical and practical studies of human rights in comparative perspectives.The book will attract readership from the academe, human rights activists, and the concerned citizenry, and will be useful to students of law, political science, public administration, and sociology.
