The overseas Indian population has formed a range of migrant organizations, whose activities include mobilizing resources and connections and engaging with numerous development initiatives in India. This book looks into Indian local and transnational migrant organizations and studies their engagement in the healthcare and education sectors in India. The focus of this book lies at the intersection of three key areas of concern: migrant organizations, engagement, and development. The book discusses how these organizations have evolved, the kind of healthcare and educational projects and activities that are being carried out by them, and how such collective efforts are effecting change in the Indian healthcare and education sectors.

Description

The Indian diaspora is increasingly engaging with the homeland by forming a range of migrant organizations—organizations constituting a growing sector of non-State actors who engage with the host country and the country of origin in a sustained and profound way.

Research on migrant organizations tends to focus only on transnational migrant organizations in host countries. Indian Migrant Organizations analyses a set of local and transnational organizations formed by Indian migrants, whose activities include mobilizing resources and connections and engaging in numerous development initiatives in India, and studies their engagement particularly in the Indian healthcare and education sectors.

In particular, the book discusses how these organizations have evolved, what kind of healthcare and educational projects and activities they are carrying out, and how such collective efforts are affecting development dynamics in India.
