Sanitation has received little attention from law & policy makers, & implementers for a long time although it was not completely outside the purview of laws & policies in India. The past couple of decades have witnessed a significant change in the manner in which sanitation is viewed, both at the national & international levels. While this change is accompanied by a growing interest among academics in the policy perspectives on sanitation, the enquiry into its legal dimensions has lagged behind considerably. This text is a comprehensive study of the right to sanitation & its multiple dimensions with a special emphasis on India. It analyses the right in terms of its narrow understanding focusing on toilets & various broader components, such as its gender, social, environmental dimensions, as well as specific issues such as manual scavenging & the conditions of work of sanitation workers.
