Description

The relationship of the judiciary, the political establishment, the mass media and the public is vital to the healthy functioning of any democracy. In recent years in our country, these relationships have become highly tense, conflictual, problematic and controversial. Many of these conflicts have revolved around axes of contempt of court and privileges of the legislatures and also in relation to the press and other mass media.

The contributions to this book explore different facets of these relations and their sources and implications for civil society and our democratic polity. Further, the authors make suggestion towards resolving these conflicts and encouraging healthier relation between these key institutions of any democratic society.
