Bhopal: Law, Accidents, and Disasters in India

The Bhopal Digital Archive was initiated by professor Marc Galanter. His collection of court documents, newspaper clippings and other secondary sources form the foundation for this collection.

This repository started as a collection of Professor Marc Galanter's material on the Bhopal disaster, but the repository welcomes and considers any material that could be potentially added to the collection. Contact Mitra Sharafi if you would like to discuss adding Bhopal material to this freely available and previously scattered collection of sources.
