Abstract title

Justifying Relativism in Human Rights: Judicial Response to Child Trafficking and Human Rights in Jharkhand, India

Abstract text

Contrary to the international human rights doctrine, the political economy discourse believes that the work of human rights is necessarily grammatical: naming, constructing and positioning the normative and in doing so builds a social relationship of power and knowledge. In addition, the anthropologists distinguish the interests- political, economic or military are served through the apotheosis of human rights and how a universal set of rights are derived from supposedly universal humanness is transformed into controlling process. Against this background, based on empirical results on child trafficking in the state of Jharkhand in India, this paper has tried to sort out three major objectives. Firstly, how the trafficking of tribal children are associated with the issue of human rights in the state of Jharkhand. an anthropological critique of the legal accountability of the guiding spirit of CRC in the context of ‘best interest of the child’. Secondly, a critical look at the working of India’s obligation to uphold the UN trafficking protocol- on act, means and exploitation. Finally, it looks for harmony between the international order and the domestic laws to provide justice for the poor subaltern victims of trafficking.
