Globalization and Indigenous Peoples in Asia by Dev Nathan

Book Description

'[This book offers] interesting empirical data to support or question a number of gender and women-related assumptions...This book will provide evidence, if need be, to those protagonists of a "natural" determination of gender roles' - Development and Change Globalization has profoundly affected both the ways of life and the livelihoods of indigenous peoples worldwide. The 12 original essays in this book are based on fieldwork conducted in India, China, Nepal and parts of the Himalaya-Hindukush region. In the first section the contributors explore the possibility of devising a more democratic and equitable alternative for indigenous peoples within the process of globalization. The essays in the second section discuss the changes in the social and economic systems of the indigenous peoples that have resulted from the transition to a market economy. The contributors to this volume demonstrate how new forms of community and continued non-market access to critical productive resources--for example, land and forests--would allow for a greater and more equitable spread of the benefits of globalization and simultaneously address some of its negative features including increased male domination.

Markets and Indigenous Peoples in Asia by Dev Nathan Markets and Indigenous Peoples in Asia, Hardback (November 2012)

This book examines how development projects affect indigenous people in six developing Asian countries including India and China. The multi-sited analysis looks at broader issues of indigenous peoples' development.

International Trade and Global Civil Society by Dev Nathan International Trade and Global Civil Society, Hardback (June 2008)

Challenges the dominant tendency of civil society to negate international trade as such. This work argues that it is necessary to frame differentiated trade rules based on levels of economic development, and also to shift from subsidies to shore up uncompetitive livelihoods to productivity-enhancing investments.

Gender Relations in Forest Societies in Asia by Dev Nathan Gender Relations in Forest Societies in Asia, Hardback (November 2003)

Based on 12 studies of forest-dwelling indigenous peoples in South and South East Asia, this work seeks to plug the gaps in existing studies on forest management in Asia, which pay scant attention to the role of women or gender relations. It posits that gender relations are crucial in the management of land and forests.
