Abstract:

This collection explores the possibilities for expanding and consolidating existing democratic spaces in Asia, under the pressure of market reforms. Emphasizing the need for going beyond the official and elitist discourse on constitutional democracy and market economy, the contributors to this volume offer penetrating insights into the prospects for democratic development in the region in the new millennium. They analyse the complex challenges of deepening poverty and indentify obstacles hindering the empowerment of marginalized communities such as women, peasants, workers and ethno-religious minorities. The contributors also suggest ways to engender development through grassroots democracy in Asia in the twenty-first century.
