Abstract

Ideas of participatory classification, economic self-reliance and political empowerment are laudable national policy goals, and Kerala has shown innovation in its adaptation of these within the State's devolved structures of local governance. Ideas of individual transitions out of poverty are reproduced, which indicate that the state pays insufficient attention to the highly unequal social and economic relationships reproducing poverty, and to poverty's political nature
