In July 2018, the honourable Supreme Court in the Tehseen Poonawalla case passed an important order laying down detailed guidelines to address mob violence.
The talk will introduce analytical findings to offer an impact assessment of the court’s intervention.
It will first attempt to assess the impact of the court’s order on the behaviour of criminal justice institutions.
It will connect this finding with thinking about how we should frame the ongoing conversation about criminal law reform in the area.
