Sustainability and solidarity in a globalized world: The case of a local network economy in rural India
In this paper, I argue for the case of local solidarity in the 'globalized' world. By using a critical genealogical approach, I describe the impact of globalization on the marginal communities of India, especially livelihood issues and draw a parallel between globalization and erstwhile colonialism in their impact on social and physical ecologies of the country. I argue that the tradition of locally organized protest movements during colonialism continues today in an attempt to create locally sustainable economic models and present an example of a case study from a village in India and its challenges. I also advocate for scholars to step out of the mainstream to study the margins that are emerging as crucibles of innovative social forms.
