Editorial Reviews


"Professor Bajaj has done a most impressive multi-level study of a major human rights education program in India. She traces her case from the national level down to individual teachers and students. The book will be essential for those interested in civics and human rights education as these fields evolve in developing countries. It will also be of great interest to students of Indian society and education more generally." John W. Meyer, Professor of Sociology, Emeritus, Stanford University "Bajaj's inspiring story of human rights education in India demonstrates the transformative possibilities of schooling for some of the world's most marginalized youth. Based on extensive fieldwork, she shows how students themselves enact rights-based advocacy to change lives. This book is essential reading for human rights activists, educators, and students seeking to understand the dynamics of social exclusion and how youth and their 'coalitional agents' can alter patterns of structural violence." - Frances Vavrus, McKnight Presidential Fellow, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota "In this major contribution to sparse scientific writing concerning human rights education, Monisha Bajaj helps us understand the complex and contradictory relationship between 'laws, liberties, and learning.' Not the mandates of the experts but the voices of the learned constitute the narratives of Indian activists' self-determination in devising human rights learning strategies. This work should be of compelling interest for all the votaries of the right to human rights education as the most precious of all fundamental human rights." -Upendra Baxi, Professor Emeritus, University of Warwick and Delhi "I welcome the publication of this research study, a significant contribution to the World Programme for Human Rights Education (2005-ongoing). This study illustrates the power of methodologically-sound human rights education as a means to great ends, notably the realization of human rights and social justice in our communities. I encourage academics and higher education institutions to develop this type of research, a useful undertaking to advance the human rights cause." - Navanethem Pillay, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Reviewed in BOOK NEWS, Inc.
