[ The adivasi of South India, after centuries of being invisible and being forcibly kept under subjugation, are slowly emerging from thraldom to claim their place under the sun. This book is the process report of the adivasi search for justice in South India, mainly the Nilgiri Biosphere in the 1990s, setting it off in the international and national perspective, tracing their history from the pre-independence, together with important documents of contemporary relevance to the adivasi. ]

[ Op de grens van het millennium dient het oude vraagstuk van sociaal beleid zich met hernieuwde kracht aan: op welke wijze kan er vormgegeven worden aan een sociaal beleid dat zowel gebaseerd is op een herkenbaar waarden- en normenstelsel als op de actieve betrokkenheid van burgers. Dit boek toont aan dat mensenrechten en het daarmee samenhangende gedachtegoed in toenemende mate een normatief kader bieden voor de invulling van sociaal beleid waarin participatie centraal staat. ]

[ In the context of economic globalisation, the mandate to implement economic, social and cultural rights is the most urgent. From the point of view of the human rights community, the primacy of human rights obligations over economic policies has been reiterated on several occasions. This book presents the view that human dignity and human rights need to be brought to the centre of the current debate on globalisation. Whereas human dignity is the core and the foundation of human rights, it is protected through implementation of rights. ]

[ Protection of fundamental human rights has always been accorded a prominent place in the Indian Constitution. However, most laws aimed at securing human rights have been hamstrung by tardy implementation. General apathy towards human rights violations has also contributed to their persistent occurence. The essays in this book evaluate the direction of human rights theory and practice in India from an interdisciplinary perspective. Issues like rights of tribals, prisoners, refugees, feminist perspectives, the role of the media. ]
