The Centre for Criminology, Criminal Justice and Victimology (CCV), RGNUL is inviting applications for the job role of Field Investigator (part-time role) for a project on Status of Radicalization in India: An Exploratory Study of Prevention and Remedies”.
About the CCV, RGNUL
The Centre for Criminology, Criminal Justice and Victimology (CCV) has been established at RGNUL with the aim to contribute towards the fundamental and applied research and action in the field of Criminology, Criminal Law, Criminal Justice, Victim Justice, and Victimology.
About the Project
In the seven decades since its independence, India has faced and countered extremism emanating from several quarters – left wing communist insurgencies; strategic terrorism emerging from neighbouring countries; right wing religious extremism; and, violent separatist movements.
In the face of such opposition, the response of our nation-state has been strong handed and resilient; thoroughly ensuring that our constitutional and social fabric remains intact. The problem of radicalization however, doesn’t end here and threats from various quarters remain ever present.
There is an emerging global discourse, which seeks to answer the question of “why does an individual get radicalized” and a corollary question of – “how can the same be prevented.” Any endeavours to answer these questions in the Indian context, requires a systematic and in-depth examination of the past and present political, socio-economic, socio-legal and psycho-social realities.
It is this examination that the proposed study seeks to undertake. The Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D), Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is the funding agency for this project. The study aims at understanding the processes of radicalization, de-radicalization and related measures, with the help of empirical evidence.
