28 January 2014

print version of this article print version

The current report Crises, Vulnerability and Poverty in South Asia : People’s Struggles for Justice and Dignity focuses on the crises, vulnerability and poverty in South Asia. The report features the voices of people against the injustice and indignity caused by the crisis-led vulnerability and poverty across the sub -continent and suggests sustainable alternatives. The broad effects and impacts of the economic crisis on vulnerability and poverty have been analysed along with its impacts on various socio-economic groups. Further, an assessment on the effect of globalisation on female workers in particular has been made within which the relation between the macroeconomic and labour policies and globalisation is debated. The report highlights the concerns of ongoing social movements in South Asia and the impact of the acts of resistance against the effects of neoliberal led policies and programmes. The report presents possible alternative development paradigms based on the emerging trend across South Asia of the peoples’ movements in the fight for restoration of the right to life and dignity. The alternative paradigms presented in this report do not stand independent, but rather strongly link the knowledge already built on by SAAPE in the poverty report of previous years.
