The book describes the problems in the north-east including security, governance, human rights, environment, corruption, and gender disparity. The policy process with regard to the Northeast is also examined. This is one of the first books that takes a close look into the problems of common people of the region and their fight for dignity of life and human rights.
This book will be very useful for those who are interested in the North-East, such as institutions and libraries, as well as students, academics, human rights activists, and nongovernmental organizations.
As a Senior Fellow at ICSSR during 2011-12, I undertook a study of the important issue of violation of democratic rights in the North-East, especially in Manipur, in the name of suppression of militant activities. Earlier in November 2009, I was part of a fact finding mission which travelled to the state to investigate and report on the extrajudicial killing of two innocent youngsters, Sanjit and Ms Rabina by the Manipur police commandos in a crowded market place in the capital city of Imphal.
The Indian Constitution asks the state to undertake measures to reduce inequality and to deliver social justice. The police must play a crucial role in meeting these objectives of the government by maintaining peace and order through just methods. Unfortunately, in Manipur and elsewhere in the region, this task is not being discharged for various reasons.
