This course aims at analyzing social transformation as a progressive approach in order to achieve universal human development by respecting human rights, promoting equality and empowering people to pursue the opportunities and choices they value. The aim of the course is to build upon the approach rooted in transformative constitutionalism (that has been part of previous trimester). Thus, viewing social transformation as a collective process this course engages with the idea of social transformation from the lens of the Constitution, law, social change and public policy.

At the core of the course lies an academic engagement with the markers of social inequality in the Indian context such as caste, tribe, religion, etc. This course will through its engagement with these categories hopefully open out a way of thinking about the larger question of social transformation.
