Corruption in India has become a growing and pervasive concern. It undermines not only the democratic institutions, but also the social fabric, political and bureaucratic structure of Indian society. In his recent book, Corruption and Human Rights in India, Prof. C. Raj Kumar examines corruption from a human rights perspective. Highlighting the inherent deficiencies in the existing institutions, mechanisms, laws, and law enforcement agencies, he strongly proposes the adoption of a multi-pronged strategy for eliminating corruption. This includes the creation of a new legislative framework, an effective institutional mechanism, a new independent and empowered commission against corruption, and greater participation of the civil society.
C. Raj Kumar is Professor and Vice Chancellor, O.P. Jindal Global University, and Dean, Jindal Global Law School. He is also a Member of the National Legal Knowledge Council. He was a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford, where he obtained his B.C.L., and a London Gammon Fellow at Harvard Law School, where he obtained his LL.M. He holds a Doctor of Legal Science (S.J.D.) from the University of Hong Kong. His areas of specialization include human rights and development, terrorism and national security, corruption and governance, law and disaster management, comparative constitutional law and legal education.
