Koodankulam Anti-Nuclear Movement: A Struggle for Alternative Development?

Abstract

Indian state’s notion of development is increasingly being questioned from the point of view of the people’s livelihood concerns. The Koodankulam anti-nuclear movement in Tamil Nadu is one such grassroots movement that is questioning mainstream development while putting forward an alternative notion of development. This paper looks at the link between technology, development and the state and how the movement is addressing the concerns that are different from mainstream development.
