Goa 2011: Reviewing and Recovering Fifty Years

Savio Abreu (Editor) Rudolf C. Heredia (Editor) XCHR Studies Serie

The outcome of a national seminar to commemorate Goa’s liberation from Portuguese rule, this volume examines how the people of the state have shaped their post-colonial history and the socio-political and cultural contexts that have affected their contemporary history. It discusses the traumatic social changes that the society in Goa is witnessing with the years. In this context, it takes up aspects like the collective identity of the Goans expressed in their language or politics, issues of commodification of land and sustainable development with specific reference to tenancy reforms in Goa since it became free of Portuguese control—that is, in the period 1961-87, the educational scene and the struggles of civil society movements such as against the special economic zones.
