ABOUT THE BOOK

Globalisation, social justice and sustainable development are obstinately interconnected: the relationship is intuitively straight forward, yet somewhat complex. Most recently serious divergence is noticed and experienced in the expected juxtaposition between the three very important components sweeping the world in their wave and the actual reality which is transfiguring and hence attracted the attention worldwide due to the emergent tribulations. At such a time when the galaxy of scholars are grappling globally to comprehend the nexus between globalisation and sustainable development, its impact on the marginalised sections and concern for promoting social justice, present volume is contoured to ascertain the Indian experiences. The volume provides a comprehensive thematic account of the issues and concerns of globalisation, social justice and sustainable development in India by dividing the papers into three sections. Each section interrogates the nuances of an important facet of globalization, viz. 'Globalisation and Social Justice', 'Socioeconomic Aspects of Globalisation', and 'Globalisation, Environment and Sustainable Development'. Moreover, the major focus of the volume is to comprehensively identify the diverse issues and models of development triggered under globalization with a view to capture grey areas and to facilitate appropriate policy making to promote sustainable development and social justice in India. Due to having broader canvass and inter-disciplinary nature of issues covered, the book is of immense significance for academicians, researchers, post-graduate and graduate level students of social sciences and development studies, policy makers and NGOs working in the area of globalisation, environment, sustainable development, social justice and human rights.
