Human Rights Law And Gender Justice
Course Modules for Priests and Religious at Various Stages of Formation
Formation of priests and religious has been one of the major thrust areas of the Church. It has discussed the issue on several forums, including diocesan synods. This book is the outcome of a series of studies’ and reflection of the Archdiocese of Delhi, which has been involved in various people’s movements aimed at equality and dignity of human beings.
The key objective of these inspiring training modules is to eliminate inequalities and promote human rights, gender sensitivity and concern for the economically and socially ostracized people among the targeted groups during various stages of their formation. It envisages creation of a just social order, where the Gospel values of justice, love, dignity, equality and peace are sustained and lived.
The book highlights and outlines, in masterly manner, many relevant points like the cultural and educational rights of the minorities, Dalits and Adivasis, filing of FIRs, rights of an arrested person, Criminal, legal and labour laws gender inequality, social analysis and much more.
I would appeal to everyone concerned with the formation work to make use of the prepared material so that we form our future priests and religious according to the values of the Gospel.
