Rule of Law in India

A Quest for Reason

Author Harish Narasappa

  • Explains dichotomy in India's rule of law: on the one hand, institutions and laws required for the proper functioning of the country in accordance with rule of law exist on paper, on the other hand, most of these governing institutions do not function properly and lack the processes, systems, values and people to function efficiently, and, more importantly, in accordance with law.
  • Analyses various theories of rule of law propounded by scholars like Montesquieu, Dicey, Aristotle, Plato, etc.
  • Attempts to construct an Indian theory of rule of law.
