Scandinavian researchers write on Social Exclusion in Contemporary India

November 30, 2021 - 17:57

Navigating Social Exclusion and Inclusion in Contemporary India and Beyond. Structures, Agents, Practices. Edited volume by Scandinavian scholars Uwe Skoda, Kenneth Bo Nielsen and Marianne Qvortrup Fibiger. Anthem Press June 2013.
This is a collection of lucid, empirically grounded articles that explore and analyse the structures, agents and practices of social inclusion and exclusion in contemporary India and beyond. By applying the concept of social exclusion to concrete empirical case studies, the contributors expand conceptual horizons by keeping in mind that neither exclusion nor inclusion can be considered without its ‘alter ego’. The volume also challenges narrow conceptualisations of social inclusion and exclusion in terms of singular factors such as caste, policy or the economy. This collaborative endeavour and cross-disciplinary approach, which brings together younger and more established scholars, facilitates a deeper understanding of complex social and political processes in contemporary India.
