New Digital Archive About 1984 Chemical Leak in Bhopal, India

There’s a new digital archive coming to the University of Wisconsin-Madison: “Bhopal: Law, Accidents and Disasters in India” “According to Marc Galanter, UW professor emeritus of law and South Asian studies, more than 20,000 people died and hundreds of thousands more were injured as a result of the 1984 chemical leak that took place in Bhopal, India. … Now, thanks to gifts amounting to $30,000, Galanter’s extensive collection of legal documents and news clippings relating to the American and Indian litigation has been digitized and housed at UW Law Library. The searchable archive contains more than 3,600 items and is expected to grow.”
