Social Exclusion, Poverty and Development of Marginal Groups/Communities in South Asia
Developments of Marginal Groups/communities are the Fundamental Rights enshrined by the fathers of the Constitution. It is the duty of the leaders and policy makers that they should respect their constitutions. However, the reality is different. Due to the onset of Liberalization and globalisation, the Development of marginal groups/communities is questionable. Hence, the State is slowly withdrawing from its duties and allowing the donor agencies to lead the show. In return, agencies are looking only at their benefits leaving aside the welfare of these sections in South Asia. We, as citizens of South Asian countries, must address the question of Social Exclusion, Poverty and Development of Marginal Groups/Communities in order to fulfil the Rights and Duties of the Constitution.
This session covers the theoretical and empirical understandings of inter-disciplinary works by the scholars of South Asia. Thus, it builds a link between empirical works with the existing theory and gives a new look in the developmental paradigms. The proposed session attempts to discuss and also theorize the pragmatic concepts and issues related to marginal groups in the Contemporary South Asian Society. It has following sub-themes:
•Conceptual and methodological issues relating to Social Exclusion, Poverty and Development
•Policies and programmes to address the issues of social exclusion and poverty
•Role of donor agencies in the amelioration of marginal groups
