National Seminar On State, Civil Society and Empowerment in India;
Empowerment is a buzz word. It is used in media, in policy documents and in academic discourses. But it’s meaning and aims differ from one situation to another. In India providing ‘quota’ to deprived castes, communities and gender in decision making bodies, in admissions and in employment is generally understood as the best way of securing empowerment for them.
