Articles

Articles should be in the nature of a comprehensive analysis of the issues being dealt with.

Comparative studies outlining the similar and contrasting features of different systems of law are also encouraged.

Case Comments/Legislative Comments

A case comment should provide a critically through appreciation of any leading/recent case of a judicial authority. The comment should also explain the impact of the judgement on the law as it existed prior to the judgement and the impact of such judgement on the future development of law. A legislative comment should be a well knit analytical report of any legislative enactment in the form of a statute, amendment to a statute, rules under any statute of notified government regulations or policies.

Book Reviews

The authors are expected to analyse any book written by leading scholars and academics in terms of the overall relevance of the book. Authors are expected to examine the contribution of the book on existing domain knowledge and also its relevance in further developments of law. Authors are also expected to highlight such elements or themes discussed in the book which are either unexplored or underexplored.

Themes for Submission

Marginalization is the process of denuding a person or group of persons of its legitimate political, social and economic power and consequently pushing it on the fringe of the society. This results in an exclusion not only from welfare benefits conferred by state but also from the advantages of a competitive market economy. Marginalisation can happen in many ways, including but not limited to deprivation of resources, non recognition and discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, age, colour, race, language, culture, religion, beliefs, disease, disability or any other criteria. Unfortunately, the State has been a direct and indirect instrumentality of causing marginalisation. the discourse on human rights for marginalised people is different from any other general discourse on human rights because it must take into account the specific prejudices and bias faced by marginalised people not faced by other sections of society.

This issue of Human Rights Law Journal will focus on the three dominant discourses on the human rights of marginalised people;

  1. Gender Justice and Human Rights

  2. Human Rights of Tribals and Indigenous People

  3. Human Rights and Racial Discrimination
