Sustainability of Rights after Globalisation

First Edition
Edited by:


August 2011 | 280 pages | SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Sustainability of Rights after Globalisation is the result of the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR)-supported research program, 'Globalisation and Sustainability of Rights'. The thrust of this volume is on various concerns of globalization and its interface with rights.

The book talks about the interconnectedness of globalization with social and economic systems and how links develop with reference to both polity and common people's movements. The book provides a new way of understanding the constitution of rights with the help of micro-histories drawn from diverse fields, such as environmental rights, law, information, and labor studies in India.

The book examines how rights have been redefined in this era of globalization and how India is still plagued by the constant tension between 'social' yearning for democratic values and 'economic' competition for unhindered profits.
