Om Prakash Vyas, India
I am an Officer working in the National Human Rights Commission of India. I joined the Commission in 1995 from the police services. I have investigated several cases in the field on varied issues related to violation of human rights. I was decorated with the “Presidents Police Medal” for meritorious services on republic day of India in 2009.
Besides my duties, I am also an international resource person on human rights visiting various institutes to deliver lectures and to conduct training programs. I did my research in Master of Laws (L.L.M.) on ‘Development of Human Rights Jurisprudence in India: Judicial Contribution’ in 2010. I now intend to do research on the issue of human trafficking in the Master of Human Rights and Democratisation course. My other areas of interest are custodial management and women’s issues.
