Impact of Globalisation on Tribals

In the Context of Kerala

By Mathew Aerthayil

Globalization, which has swept through all nations of the world, has brought about tremendous economic changes in India. But, its effect is experienced differently by various sections of Indian society. This book looks at the impact of globalization on the tribal people in Kerala, who are the most undeveloped and marginalized group in the state. The book studies their livelihood - including employment and the availability of essential commodities - and their socio-cultural life - including their cultural and religious practices, health, education, and women's issues. It also provides a look at land alienation and the organizational struggle for land, and offers strategies to counter the negative impact of globalization on tribals.
