Social Watch India launches report on Governance

The Social Watch India Report 2007 will be released on 30th June 2007 at Stein Auditorium, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi . The report focuses on the performance of institutions of governance namely the Parliament, the Executive, the Judiciary and the institutions of local self governance from a human rights perspective. The Social Watch India Report 2007 emphasizes the importance of ensuring these Rights to vulnerable sections such as the tribals, the dalits, the poor and the women.

The National Social Watch Coalition (NSWC) is an India-wide participatory effort by a number of civil society organizations and concerned citizens. It is attempting to create a process that seeks to look at the institutions of governance on an annual basis and also address issues of common concern at regional levels.
