Recognising a reinvented constitution

|Title:||Recognising a reinvented constitution|
|Publisher:||Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies, Division of Pacific and Asia History, The Australian National University.|
The text of the Indian Constitution remains largely unchanged; it is the context that has changed. Liberalisation, globalisation and the expanded connotations given to 'terrorism' have altered the conception of human rights. They have also set rights in conflict. And a lexical prioritising of rights has come into being. This lexical priority is propositioned on malleable concepts that include: --the interests of national security --public purpose --the public interest and, increasingly, the market.
