A human rights based approach to development in India

Moshe Hirsch (Editor), Ashok Kotwal (Editor), Bharat Ramaswami (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


"Over the last twenty years, India has enacted legislation to turn development goals such as food security, primary education, and employment into legal rights for its citizens. But enacting laws is different from implementing them. A Human Rights Based Approach to Development in India examines a diverse range of human development issues over a period of rapid economic growth in India. Demonstrating why institutional and economic development is synonymous, this volume details the many obstacles hindering development. This book ultimately asks whether India's approach to development is working and whether its right to develop is at odds with its international commitments."--
