Edited by: Kausumi Saha


This paper attempts to analyse the recently passed amendments to the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), under the broader legal discourse relating to counter-terrorism, national security and human rights concerns. It further looks at UAPA in light of domestic jurisprudence on fundamental rights protection as well as various international legal instruments to assess its compatibility with universally accepted human rights norms.
