Research Focus: My research attempts to explore and understand the welfare mechanism of the Zo tribes located in the North Eastern region of India. It involves identifying the actors and institutions involved with their roles in welfare delivery. I look at the political economy of the state and analyse its social policies, making a contrast with the lived experiences of the people. The role of the non-state actors including religious institutions, civil societies and NGOs in providing welfare is also an integral part of my study. Throughout my study, I will focus on identifying the role that labour plays in the larger framework of welfarism.
