Project Description

Introduction

Tribals, as marginal people, have been subjected to various processes and practices of rules, regulations and laws since times immemorial. In the colonial era, the process got accelerated in the name of technical planning and scientific progress. Furthermore, on the eve of modernization and globalization in post-independent India, the split-over effects of industrialization and free-market economy were brought into the tribal hinterlands trying partly to transform the peaceful countryside into industrial hubs and partly build up supermarkets in tribal pockets. Unfortunately, however, the discontentment over the discourses and practices of development rapidly increased unwrapping the unholy trinities of the agents and agencies of development.

KISS Tribal Rights Legal

Not only their resources are usurped but also their very identity is in question and hence existence is in jeopardy. This alarming situation of tribal development gives us an opportunity to establish innovative Department of Tribal Legal Studies and Tribal Rights to explore how, instead of whether, tribal people are related to law and their rights. Furthermore, it will be challenging to explore possibilities to make their right as well as the law related to tribal people in modern era.
