Résumé de thèse

Floriane Bolazzi was previously part of the program ""Palanpur : India’s Economic "Revolution" : A Perspective from Six Decades of Economic Development in a North Indian Village" lead by Dr. Himanshu (Jawaharlal Nehru University) to which she contributed a study on networks effects and labour mobility in Palanpur (Uttar Pradesh), and later she developed a PhD project partly based on the findings of the program. Floriane inquires in her PhD the nexus between the flexibilisation of work, the transformations of the employment structures and the social segmentation of the labour market ; she tries to identify and understand the conditions and the dynamics determining the individual and collective trajectories of social (im)mobility. Her focus is on rural labourforce converting from agriculture to non-farm sectors and her research is located in Moradabad district (Uttar Pradesh). She combines a statistical analysis of the inter-generational and the intra-generational mobility in Palanpur from a wide range longitudinal database from 1958 to 2015 with an in-depth qualitative survey in Palanpur and surrounding urban areas.
