The notion of ‘work and employment’ of ‘work and employment’ for women is complex. While economic factors predominantly determine a man’s participation in employment, the reasons why women work, or do not work, or whether they work part-time or full-time, can be diverse and are often rooted in a complex interplay of economic, cultural, social and personal factors. In India, as in most other parts of the world, fewer women participate in employment compared to men. This is the backdrop against which Women and Work analyses a wide range of issues—from what counts for ‘work’ to th... View more info

As the global pendulum of economic vibrancy swings eastwards, the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) has been receiving increasing attention from all actors, state as well as non-state ones, and now presents itself in sharp focus as one of the volatile seascapes on this earth. The navies operating in the region will, therefore, need to depend on high technology and associated doctrines and procedures, so as to effectively deal with the wide... View more info

The term ‘development’ was used in the beginning to refer only to economic growth. Afterwards, it passed through paradigmatic shifts to assume an inclusive conceptual status in which are merged the processes of development as taking place in economic, social and political aspects of human society. Realistic development is the true meaning of development, which refers to human and societal development along with consistent economic growth. The characteristics of development are akin to those of modernization. Both determine each other. A society would not proceed on the path of development ... View more info

Development in India has been lopsided and uneven. Despite best efforts, the government has been unable to contain inequality, poverty and unjust distribution of resources. A gaping difference exists between the two worlds of the haves and the have-nots. Underdevelopment and Naxalism in India focuses on the contradictions of the Indian democracy, the disparities, and the perpetual marginalization of the backward states, taking hypothetical stance that such disparities have adverse effects. One such menacing fallout has been the ‘Naxalite Movement’. This movement thrives on the dissatisfa... View more info

The concern of the present work is to examine urban development and new localism with special reference to Mumbai. It views urban development in the present context as development taking place in the urban realm, with special emphasis on people-centred development (PCD) in Mumbai. The study traces the evolution of the concept of development from its growth-oriented approach to the present approach of PCD. In fact, development in general and urban development in particular, with emphasis on PCD, received scant attention in both the policy pronouncements as well as the programmes and plans made ...

It is a fascinating case study in light-speed urban development, hyper-consumerism, massive immigration, and vertiginous inequality. Its rulers have succeeded in making Dubai into a worldwide brand, publicising its astonishing hotels and leisure opportunities while at the same time successfully downplaying its complex policies towards guest workers and suppression of dissent.Printed Pages: 256.

Decentralisation is a much-debated issue in India and other countries with federal system of governance.

On the other hand, there are several communities in India who have been totally assimilated into national mainstream.

The success of the democratic process in a country depends on the capability and integrity of the organs of the state, institutions of governance and the extent of people’s participation in governance. Democracy, in fact, involves dignity, diversity, dissent and development. Unless the last person celebrates his/her sense of dignity, exercises democratic dissent and involves himself/herself in the process of governance and development, democracy remains an empty rhetoric. Therefore, human development cannot sustain without good governance and governance cannot be sound unless it sustains hum... View more info
