Democratic Citizenship and Social Justice

The complex socio-political landscape in India encompasses issues of caste, community, religion, language and region and presents a fertile ground for dissent and debate that sometimes degenerate into conflict. The discourse on Social Justice has increasingly gained prominence in today’s context of the ever-changing processes of assimilation to dominant cultural narratives. The notion of democratic citizenship encompasses elements of recognition, redistribution and equity and provides the framework within which we can re-think and re-work our understanding of inter-community relations.

Yugantar continues to network between a wide variety of communities in order to ensure communication and dialogue between disparate social systems aiming to create harmony. This is done with special focus on conflict ridden geographies and the marginalized sections of society. Yugantar has also produced significant literature on social justice and cultural conflict studies.
