About the Theme:
Environmental Justice: Contemporary Issues in International and National Perspective Quality of environment determines the quality of life. Clean environment helps in enriching the quality of life. In the past few decades' awareness of the damaging effects of environmental pollution on human beings and their quality of life has increased dramatically.

In the hustle-bustle of life, man has almost forgotten nature and has become more and more modernized with the aid of latest scientific and technological developments. At its core, environmental justice is about incorporating environmental issues into the broader intellectual and institutional framework of human rights and democratic accountability. The term necessarily encompasses the widest possible definition of what is considered "environmental" and is unrepentantly anthropocentric in its orientation placing people, rather than flora and fauna, at the center of a complex web of social, economic, political, and environmental relationships. Most important, it concerns itself primarily with the environmental injustices of these relationships, and the ways and means of rectifying these wrongs and/or avoiding them in the future.

Environmental justice is about social transformation directed towards meeting basic human needs and enhancing our quality of life - economic quality, health care, housing, human rights, environmental protection, and democracy. In linking environmental and social justice issues, the environmental justice approach seeks to challenge the abuse of power which results in poor people having to suffer the effects of environmental damage caused by the greed of others. Keeping in mind the importance of Environmental Justice in the socioeconomic milieu of the day, School of Law, The NorthCap University is organizing an International Essay Writing Competition on the above mentioned broad theme.
