6th Death Anniversary of Smitu Kothari

smitu2Dear Friends,

Today is the 6th death anniversary of our beloved friend, scholar, activist and writer Smitu Kothari, who left us on the 23rd March 2009. Intercultural Resources, founded by him pay homage and tribute to Smitu whose  writings and activities include a wide spectrum of issues and arenas ranging from Development-induced displacement, , the idea of people’s movements, people’s governance and social-environmental movements. He was one of the most consistent voices against the neo-liberal politics, anti-poor policies of the state and a great critique of the contemporary privatisation, globalisation and liberalisation.

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
