Rule of law is the foundation of modern democracies. It envisages, inter alia, participatory law-making, just and certain laws, a bouquet of human rights, certainty and equality in the application of law, accountability to law, an impartial and non-arbitrary government and an accessible and fair dispute resolution mechanism.
This work’s primary goal is to understand and explain the obvious dichotomy that exists between theory and practice in India’s rule of law structure. The book discusses the contours of the rule of law in India, the values and aspirations in its evolution and its meaning as understood by the various institutions, identifying reason as the primary element in the rule of law mechanism. It later examines the institutional, political and social challenges to the concepts of equality and certainty, through which it evaluates the status of the rule of law in India.
