About The Book

Human rights are of universal interest because it is the inherent nature of all human beings to yearn for freedom, equality and dignity and they have a right to achieve them.

In 21st century, we find that the world is becoming one global village. We are being drawn together by the remarkable advances made in science and technology which enable us to share the information instantly. As a result, the socio-economic scenario of our country is changing drastically. Moreover, the grave and common problems of overpopulation, dwindling natural resources and the environmental crisis threaten the very foundation of our existence on this planet. Human rights, environmental protection, social and economic equality are all inter-related. In all these issues, a sense of universal responsibility assumes the significance for promotion of human rights. Human rights is not only an unfinished agenda, it is an evolving one. Right from the war on terrorism to climate change, urbanisation to financial and food crises, human rights are facing new challenges.

In an ever increasingly complex and globalised environment, the demand for the protection and promotion of basic human rights and fundamental freedom is continuously increasing. It is essentially in view of this rise, the book has been written on the theme "Challenges and Prospects of Human Rights in 21 st Century". This book will explore the challenges prospects of Human Rights with reference to: (i) Rights of Vulnerable Sections, (ii) Consumer Rights in India. (iii) Terrorism / People`s Movements and Human Rights, (iv) Executives` Expansion and Human Rights and (v) Human Rights and Law.
