Marginalization, Development, and Resistance is a set of two volumes dedicated to the memory of S.R. Sankaran, a legendary civil servant with deep commitment to the poor. This tribute attempts to promote meaningful debate on the development model in the country that, instead of improving the conditions of the poor, is causing their further marginalization, resulting in varied forms of resistance.
This volume discusses the plight of the most marginalized among them – the Dalits and Adivasis – as well as issues relating to migration, manual scavenging, poverty, employment, ecology, and the agrarian crisis.
The contributors to these volumes include administrators with long experience in policymaking and implementation, academicians involved in critical debates on the very essence of what constitutes development, and activists who are a part of resistance movements. Combining critical ideas, rich administrative experience, and people’s responses, these two volumes attempt to take the development debates in contemporary India forward.
