Lockhart Publishes Op-Ed in The Hindu on dilution of Indian Environmental Protections

William_Lockhart_5465_m58zx2Bill Lockhart, Emeritus Professor of Law, published an April 22, 2015, op-ed, “The Ministry of Magic Tricks,” in The Hindu, one of the two largest newspapers of record in India.

In the editorial, which concerns the Indian government’s decision to dilute environmental protections for project approval, Lockhart writes, “Puzzled by this behaviour, we are forced to conclude that the members of the High Level Committee, the government officials who are beating this hasty retreat from environmental protection, and the industrialists who support these changes share a common delusion. They all believe in magic.”
