Rights in the Administration of Justice: An International Perspective

Dilip Das, State University of New York, Plattsburgh

The United Nations has developed a considerable body of international treaties through various declarations, conventions, and protocols on human rights in the administration of justice for the citizens in general and, women and children in particular. It is my perspective that rights granted by the international instruments to the citizens in general including women have become a reality to a considerable extent around the world but the progress inr egard to the children in this area have been slower. The paper will also examiune the reasons for the same.
