Home >> NPOs >> India Centre for Human Rights and Law

For several years a group of lawyers and social activists had envisioned establishing a comprehensive human rights centre that would fight for access to justice for poor people – particularly women, children, minority and vulnerable communities. 

 

A Centre that would deepen and widen the understanding of human rights within the country and assist in the creation of laws and policies that will bring about a more equitable society. 

 

With this in mind the India Centre for Human Rights and Law (ICHRL) was established in 1997.  ICHRL defines rights not only as civil and political rights but social, economic, environmental and cultural rights.

The main areas of work of the Centre are: 

·        Legal aid and public interest litigations (PIL)

·        Investigations, monitoring and responding to human rights violations

·        Para-legal training, specialized training and documentation

·        Campaigns and advocacy

·        Publications

Since 1997 the Centre has carved itself a niche in certain key areas of human rights and law.  These being:

·        Criminal Justice and Prisoners’ Rights

·        Gender Justice and Prevention of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

·        Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Rights

·        Child Rights

·        Disability Rights

·        Peace and Democracy

·        Toxics and Waste

 

The Centre also runs two initiatives from its premises:

·        The Indian People’s Tribunal on Environment and Human Rights

·        The Mumbai Med waste Action Group

 

In addition to this in the next few years ICHRL will be expanding into three new areas of human rights:

·        Governance and Accountability

·        Globalisation and Law

·        The Centre is also in the process of establishing a human rights news feature service
