Human Rights Law and Policy Review is an initiative by the alumni and students of Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar. Through this platform, we desire to provide a space for exchange of knowledge and ideas on the brewing issues concerning Human Rights law and Humanitarian Law. The ultimate objective is to explore the area of Human Rights law by identifying niche issues and fostering academic discussions on the same.
We encourage writings by academicians, legal practitioners and law students in order to accord a holistic understanding of the multi-faceted dimensions of human rights law. However, submissions are not restricted to the analysis of human rights alone. Authors are permitted to explore the interface of human rights with other domains of national as well as international laws.
