Industrial Clusters and Economic Resilience: the Case of Ranipet in Tamil Nadu (India)

Abstract : Some recent studies on urbanisation in India referring to Ananya Roy’s theory, focused on informalisation and the impossibility of governance, have put the spotlight back on the peripheralisation of industry (Coelho and Vijayabaskar, 2014), keeping small industrial towns at low levels of dynamism and social welfare. In contrast to those approaches, this paper examines the resilience of a small industrial town (Ranipet – Tamil Nadu), which has been well integrated in global networks since colonial times. It resonates with the framework of subaltern urbanisation  (Denis and Zérah, 2017) involving the strong agency of local actors (social capital, business families, and women workers) in spite of global circuits of capital.
