About the Book :

Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs) are more backward and under-developed in comparison to other tribes in terms of their socio-economic and health status. Over the time various institutional and voluntary efforts have been made for their upliftment. Their exposures to outside world have also increased over the period. Articles covered in this volume make attempt to examine impact of these initiatives on their status from human rights and social justice point of view. Attempts have been made to present comprehensive picture of their condition with the help of both “Book View” and “Field View”. The book will be quite useful for planners, researchers and change agents working in the area of tribal development.
