Centre for Law and Policy Research (India): Rights in Review 2015

by | Jan 20, 2016

The Centre for Law and Policy, based in Bangalore, India, has released a fascinating report analyzing the human rights jurisprudence from the Indian Supreme Court in 2015.

After examining the case law on the right to life, right to freedom of speech, equality and non-discrimination and freedom of religion, the report concludes: “the Court has not made significant progress in 2015 towards articulating a model of constitutional judicial review for fundamental rights with clarity about the nature of constitutional injury necessary to trigger judicial review, the absolute or relative character of rights and whether there is any place for deference to the legislature and executive in Indian constitutional rights adjudication.”

The report can be found here.
