|Title Review |
The articles are the reflections of eminent specialists and committed activists on the reports and debates at the Beijing Women''s Conference / United Nations Conference in 1995 and the Ninth Inter-disciplinary Women''s Conference in 1996. They look into concerns related to development of activism and critical theory within the academic framework and the struggles of individuality and non-governmental organisations on important issues of, in particular, Third World societies. These include human rights, social justice, welfare, industrialisation, globalisation, intellectual property, and plant variety rights and biotechnology.
The essays involve discussions on themes of related interest such as Gandhi''s Economics of Peace and health ethics in modern India. They throw up a range of perceptions that many be viewed as a phenomenological exploration of a field of activity growing in significance in recent years.
