Liberty and Security of the Person in India, with Particular Emphasis on Access to Courts

I am deeply grateful to Interights for inviting me to this Judicial Colloquium on the Domestic Application of International Human Rights Norms. This Judicial Colloquium is one in a series which have been held from time to time in different parts of the Commonwealth under the co-sponsorship of Commonwealth Secretariat and Interights. The first was convened by me in 1988 in Bangalore (India) where predominantly South Asian and South East Asian judges of superior courts met in order to discuss the topic of how international human rights norms can be incorporated in domestic jurisprudence.
