The book explores various issues pertaining to human rights and criminal justice system in India. It argues that a number of gap areas-inadequate laws, lack of impartial investigation, and inability to protect witness-exist in the present system that have led to a climate of impunity for mass crimes. The volume comprehensively covers topics such as victim's rights, impunity, and military justice system. It also discusses the status of Dalits and sexual minorities in relation to accessing justice. This volume compares India's legal framework with that of the international community, and builds a strong case for reforms. The essays also highlight the jurisprudence and standards set by the international courts and tribunals to deal with mass crimes and suggest that India reform its system to effectively address such issues. This book will interest lawyers, policymakers, activists, and journalists. Scholars, researchers, teachers, and students of law and politics will also find it useful.
