Abstract or Description

A comparative study of the Dalit community in India and the UK.

This exploratory study had two key aims; firstly, to investigate young peoples (aged between 18 and 21 years of age) personal views and experiences of caste identity and discrimination who were from a South Asian heritage, particularly where possible who identified themselves as having a Dalit heritage. Secondly, it aimed to consider what impact, if any, the following had on their caste identity; globalisation; ‘consumer capitalism’; the internet and social media/networking sites, eg. Facebook and Twitter; music; increased international travel; and the growing opportunities for upward social mobility, for example, via educational achievement.
