Abstract

Nets for Social Safety is a first –of –its-kind study, specially commissioned by the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers, to focus on the growth and changing composition of social security provisions in the fisheries sector of Kerala, a small coastal State in southwest India. John Kurien and Antonyto Paul, the authors of the study, enumerate the achievements and problems confronted by a developing maritime State in trying to ensure that a section of its population, which are initially left out of the development process, is netted back into the mainstream. They show how, in Kerala, this process was not only the result of enlightened State policy, but also, more importantly, the result of the collective action by fishworkers themselves. (76pp.) Among the many insights that can be gleaned from the study, one significant conclusion is that, even with limited means, a developing State can conceive and implement innovative social security.
