The poor and marginalised groups and communities face several struggles while interfacing with diverse ac- tors for scarce and competitive resources. Further, with the advent of globalisation and more powerful market forces acting on them, they are at risk of being pushed further to the margins. Mainstream development ap- proaches aimed at enhancing livelihoods or eradicat- ing poverty often fails to recognise the daily struggles of poor people or the structural determinants of their deprivation. There is thus a tremendous need to work through social and political structures in developing al- ternative livelihood approaches.

The Master of Arts in Social Work (Livelihoods and Social Entre-preneurship) aims at strengthening theoretical under- standing of the complexities and dynamics of poor peoples’ life worlds and livelihoods and innovate practices and institutions in enabling the poor and marginalised sections of the population to access im- proved livelihood opportunities and resources. Apart from critically examining present-day livelihood ap- proaches, the programme strives towards innovating and incubating alternative models of livelihood pro- motion, ensuring resource access and resource justice for the poor and marginalised, social equity, empow- erment and social value creation. A key strategy for the same is to equip students to work with vulnerable groups and marginalised communities to develop and strengthen their livelihoods through meaningful so- cial enterprises, collectives etc. The vision and mission of the Centre for Livelihoods and Social Innovation (CLSI) ofering the said M.A programme is grounded on the understanding that livelihood promotion, so- cial innovation and social entrepreneurship develop- ment takes place in the institutional context of co- production, which implies that social workers not only interface with volunteers, individuals and community groups, but also with policy makers, civil servants and corporates.

The programme aims to impart adequate knowledge, de- velop competent skills and provide students an exposure to appropriate attitudinal perspectives so as to prepare them to occupy positions in Government programmes like the National Rural Livelihood Missions, NGOs, social
