Abstract

Problems of mass poverty in multi-ethnic poor countries require more complex understanding than conventional economic description. Given the importance of the distributive issues for development, political demands for the removal of social and economic disadvantage may find expression in regional movements based on ethnic ties. The social outcome of regional movements in south Asia suggests that the developmental worth of ethnic politics needs more careful assessment than the kind of theoretical prejudgment which has dominated studies of development.
