Book Talk: Corruption and Human Rights in India
On Monday, April 2nd at 6:15 p.m. meet author C. Raj. Kumar and listen to a discussion of his new book Corruption and Human Rights in India: Comparative Perspectives on Transparency and Good Governance, with commentary David Singh Grewal.
Corruption in India has become a growing and pervasive concern. It undermines not only the democratic institutions, but also the social fabric, political and bureaucratic structure of the Indian society. This book examines corruption from a human rights perspective. It differentiates between two approaches to dealing with corruption, the criminal law enforcement approach to recognizing criminal culpability and the human rights approach to seeking accountability for corruption.
