About the Book

The biodiversity-rich North-East has always been on an enigmatic absence in the history of India. These socio-economic, cultural, and traditional subtleties of this region that are considered to be marginal, have mostly not engrossed the kind of attention that they should have. However, time is changing and its status as terra incognita is also changing. Several pieces of literature from diverse disciplines have started highlighting its environmental significance and associated diverse challenges.

This unexplored melting pot of biological and natural resources-rich region has now drawn significant attention in legal literature as well but the dearth still remains.

Call for Book Chapters

To fill this gap, the torch-bearing- first National Law University of North-East India is now aiming to publish a scholastic book, highlighting some of the existing and emerging challenges pertaining to the enviro-legal aspects of the management and sustainable utilization of its natural and biological resources. The proposed book will be published by a renowned international or national publisher with ISBN in the year 2022.
