Description

The assumption of economic integration is that it would lead to greater economic participation and livelihood opportunities, which would positively impact citizens and citizenship. Economic participation in the global economy manifests in two ways: the export of local products through multinational corporations (MNCs), or the local marketing of goods globally produced by MNCs. Assuming the second model is followed, this paper provides answers through an analysis of Project Shakti, an initiative of Hindustan Unilever Limited, promoted by the Indian government.
