The haliya and kamaiya systems in Nepal

The haliya and kamaiya systems in Nepal

Ratings: (0)|Views: 140|Likes:
The haliya and kamaiya systems in Nepal are often labelled as
modern forms of slavery, or simply as agricultural bonded labourers. The
former exists among various caste/ethnic groups, including the Musahar
people, while the latter primarily affects a section of the Tharu ethnicity.
The Nepali government has outlawed both practices, but the haliya and
kamaiya contract agreements have largely moved from adults to children.
This empirical study presents an alternative perspective by taking into
account of ethnic Musahar and Tharu children’s understanding of the
negative and positive aspects of their daily life-worlds. In doing so, this
paper shows a rather complex picture of bonded labour than the ones
presented by various advocacy groups, and in particular, it echoes the
voices of research participants that unless better alternatives are
available, a completely abolitionist stance actually puts their immediate
livelihood strategies in serious jeopardy.
