Pune : deccan express Former Justice of the Bombay High court Dr Shalini Phansalkar Joshi has written a book on child abuse from sociological and legal dimensions. A virtual book release and a discussion will be organised at 11 am on January 22 in Pune.


The Symbiosis Law School, Pune (SLS-P), a constituent of the Symbiosis International (Deemed University), will organise the Virtual Book Release and Discussion on ‘Decoding Child Sexual Abuse – A Socio-Legal Analysis of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012’, authored by Justice Shalini Phansalkar Joshi, Former Judge, Bombay High Court, Distinguished Visiting Judge Scholar in Residence, Symbiosis Law School, Pune. It is published by Oak Bridge Publishing Pvt Ltd.


Child sexual abuse is considered as one of the gravest forms of abuse because it involves sexual acts with a minor. Its seriousness stems from the fact that a minor can never provide consent to any form of sexual activity. Furthermore, such abuse can have lasting effects on the physical and mental well-being of a victim. As one of the most stigmatised issues in society, it is not only a violation of basic human rights, but also a major public safety concern.


The book aims to cover different aspects that constitute child sexual abuse and its pervasiveness in the Indian society. Also, it analyses the legal framework and the social context against which the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012 operates. It provides a holistic view on the subject and will act as a reference to develop the best practices relating to substantive and procedural laws. It will help the legal fraternity, including the Judges, Practitioners, Academicians, Legal Researchers, Police Officers and Social Activists, NGOs to understand and deliberate on the various dimensions of the subject.


The book shall be released in the august presence of Chief Guest of the event Hon’ble Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka, Judge, Supreme Court of India. The event will be presided over by Dr SB Mujumdar, Hon’ble Chancellor, SIU, Founder & President, Symbiosis.
