Nirma University Law Journal has completed five years; a landmark in the journey of exploring changing dynamics of law. In the latter half of the sixth year, the Journal responds to pertinent issue, that is, perspective of Human Rights. This is a thematic issue and it aims to advance deeper understanding and broader thinking on human rights – in form of dilemma, violation, remedial measures, exploration, revelation of newer dimensions and challenges in India. This issue, ‘Exploring contours of human rights in India’ sightsees multiple, known and unknown dimensions of human rights discourse, weaving inter-disciplinary threads and captures newer forms of challenges.
As we aim to make this journal a beacon of legal education by encouraging synthesis of knowledge and best practices cutting across academic and research fraternity, henceforth, the journal will have one thematic issue and the other as regular in the coming year.
We thank all the contributors for their ingenuity in expressing new ideas and critical thinking. We hope that the journey of legal research with multi-disciplinary content is fruitful for the fraternity and students at large.
