About the organisation
Quill Foundation is an autonomous institution engaging in research and advocacy in India. Quill’s core work revolves around pertinent issues of human rights, justice, and equity, faced by the underprivileged sections of the people of India, especially Adivasis, Dalits, Muslims, women, sexual minorities and differently-abled persons.
Presently, the Delhi based Law and Human Rights Cell (LHRC), under Quill, seeks to examine the many ways in which legal and judicial processes form the context of everyday injustices. And how the interface between law and the social world, constitutes citizens differently in terms of access to rights and justice.
The underlying philosophy is the preamble and the fundamental rights of the constitution of India.
