About this publication:

This handbook serves lawyers, human rights defenders, and social activists
as an effective litigation tool for the protection and promotion of human rights, including Economic, Social and Cultural rights. It offers practitioners the conceptual overview of strategic litigation and helps in framing strategic litigation in practice; meaning selection of issue for litigation, gathering and analyzing data and information, mapping the jurisdiction of the courts before filing it, documentation of the cases, protection of victims and witness, pleading in the court and monitoring implementation of the judgment. It also deals with the writ jurisdiction mandate of the court and how petitioners or practitioners can be strategic while invoking the writ jurisdiction of the courts, as appropriate.
