(p.1) 1 Introduction
Corruption and Human Rights in India

C. Raj Kumar

Oxford University Press

The introduction explains the theme of the book, which is about the human rights implications of corruption in India. It argues that corruption in India is not merely a law enforcement issue where the existing laws of the state are violated and which can be remedied merely by more stringent law enforcement. It suggests that the existing anti-corruption framework in India places far too much emphasis on the criminal justice system for dealing with corruption, a system that is itself facing a crisis due to corruption and other problems. It also discusses the focus and principles of the so-called rights-based approach to fighting corruption.

Keywords:   corruption, human rights, India, law enforcement, anti-corruption framework, criminal justice system, rights-based approach
