Legal Power to the People

In an op-ed published at Project Syndicate, Namati CEO Vivek Maru argues that legal empowerment is crucial for taking forward two of the great human endeavors since World War II: the movement for human rights and the quest for development. The essay begins at Ramlila Grounds, the site of some of the largest protests in India’s recent history, and closes with a call for a global legal empowerment fund.
