About the Book

The internet is an ageing and evolving phenomenon. Over the years, the internet has unleashed a culture of vigorous interaction and opinionated discourses. More often than desired, these interactions channel into doctrinal bigotry or singular fixation over one or a group of individuals resulting in extremism, hate-mongering, and even violence.

Interactions in the cyberspace, unlike in the real world are often monitored, spied upon and are also prone to exploitation by third-parties for purposes of scouting and data collection. Although the element of surveillance works in the combined interests of users at times for its evidentiary value in order to report and address grievances, it is, however, quite chilling to discover the sheer iteration of such burgeoning criminal behaviour in the cyberspace, especially the ones targeting women and children.

In an attempt to address these points of a discourse, the Indian Society for Legal Research (ISLR) invites original, unpublished chapters on the theme of ‘Gender-based Cyber Violence’ for an edited E-book with an ISBN number.
