Dissent Discrimination and Dispossession: Tribal Movements in Contemporary India

Kamal K. Misra (Editor) N.K. Das (Editor)

The volume, focused on the rights discourse and the legitimate rights claims of the tribals, is on the new dimensions of tribal movements today that are focusing on forest rights, environmental concerns, and issues of dispossession and development-induced displacement. The articles here discuss tribals’ struggle for livelihood rights, right for dignity and recognition of selfhood. Scholars deal with tribal resistance evident in the Santal insurrection and Ho protests under the British, the Adivasi resistance in the Niyamgiri hills and Naxalism/Maoism to take up issues like tribal self-determination and self-management of resources, industrial encroachments and land alienation. Exploring the status of constitutional safeguards and implementation of Acts like the Forest Rights Act, they delve into the tribal claims in the North-east related to representative democracy, marginalisation, creating dissent among minority tribes, abuse of forest rights, illegal logging and discourse on indigeneity.
