Course objective: More often than not, when we talk of laws we mean authoritatively
sanctioned rules, which are considered essential for a well-ordered society. Yet laws in a
democracy are also about constituting a society marked by equality, freedom, and dignity.
The rights approach to law has assumed importance in democracies, precisely because of
people’s struggles to broaden the understanding of law as something which reflects the will
of the people. As such law becomes an important source of rights and duties, which develop
and strengthen alongside institutions of representative democracy, constitutional norms, and
the rule of law. This course aims to understand law as a source of rights, as a progressively
widening sphere of substantive justice, welfare, and dignity. This relationship between laws
and rights will be studied through specific values which have come to be seen as integral
for a democratic society viz., equality and non-discrimination, empowerment, redistribution
and recognition of traditional rights etc.
