Sustainability of Rights after Globalisation is a result of the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) supported research programme ?Globalisation and Sustainability of Rights? conducted by the Calcutta Research Group. The book talks about the interconnectedness of globalisation with social and economic systems and how links develop with reference to both polity and common people?s movements. The book discusses how rights-based movements have moved from the local to the global and how various movements across the world provide an alternative space of dialogue and future action. Aspects like analysis of the interdependence of market forces, the state, and the neo-liberal economic policies and how they impact the livelihood of people, have also been analysed in the book. The various chapters in the book contribute to a new way of understanding one?s basic rights with the help of micro-histories drawn from fields as diverse as environmental rights, law, and communication and labour studies in India. The book shows how rights have been redefined in this era of globalisation and it examines how the constant tension between ?social? yearning for democratic values and ?economic? competition for unhindered profits, still plagues India today.
