9780195699227: Circular Migration and Multi Locational Livelihoods: Strategies in Rural India

Circular migration has become the enduring mobility pattern of the poor in agriculturally marginal areas of India. This volume deals with millions of unskilled and semiskilled poor who migrate away from the rural region in search of jobs that are mostly in the informal organized sector. It studies migration using different conceptual frameworks intended to provide coherence across the studies in order to draw out policy conclusions. With case studies pulled together from some of the poorest and most deprived parts of India, this volume shows how important migration has become in sustaining and improving rural livelihoods.

Book Description Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Circular migration is an important livelihood strategy for millions of poor people living in agriculturally marginal areas in India. Written by researchers, ethnographers, and analysts, this exhaustive volume pulls together fresh field evidence from Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, and Rajasthan to show how migration and commuting are sustaining and improving livelihoods. Although critical to many sectors, migrant workers remain on the margins of the society unable to access government schemes that are essential to India’s poverty reduction efforts. The present economic crisis has highlighted the vulnerability of sudden job losses without compensation underscoring the importance of social protection for hundreds of thousands of migrant workers who have been made redundant as factories shut down, construction slows down, and exports fall. It is unlikely that rural employment will fill this gap and workers will try to diversify into other occupations. Size: 15 x 23 Cm. Bookseller Inventory # 026181
