Article14 addresses threats to and failures of justice and deficiencies in the legal system, tracks successes that can be built upon and discerns trends and patterns that require to be brought to the widest public attention. It takes its name from arguably the most important fundamental right conferred by the Constitution of India: "The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India."
A joint effort between lawyers, journalists, and academics, Article14 provides intensive research and reportage, data and varied perspectives—either by way of commissioned research projects or indepth investigations—on issues necessary to safeguard democracy and the rule of law. We meld academic and legal rigour with journalistic flair and storytelling. We keep people at the centre of our work, connecting their stories to the operation of the justice system and chronicling efforts that harness the law to keep India’s democracy vibrant and robust.
