RESOURCES, TRIBES AND DEVELOPMENT: Competing Interests and Contours of Possibilities

Editors: M.C. Behera and Jumyir Basar

The papers included in this volume primarily focus on contradicting perspectives, competing interests and emerging outcomes when the relation between tribes and their resource perceptions shifts along the line of corporate-induced development projects. Precisely, it is a compendium of issues related to development induced displacement. With distinct analytical frames and empirical findings, the papers, contributed by the experts in the field – academics, bureaucrats and activists alike – unambiguously present a critique to perspectives of people’s development within the frame of contemporary development discourse.

The papers included in this volume primarily focus on contradicting perspectives, competing interests and emerging outcomes when the relation between tribes and their resource perceptions shifts along the line of corporate-induced development projects. Precisely, it is a compendium of issues related to development induced displacement. With distinct analytical frames and empirical findings, the papers, contributed by the experts in the field – academics, bureaucrats and activists alike – unambiguously present a critique to perspectives of people’s development within the frame of contemporary development discourse. In a broad sense the relation between ecology and economy has been examined through the papers with reference to specific contexts in development practices where resource perception and utilization are contested by traditional and commercial users. No doubt, the book will be handy for anyone who needs/wants to know the full range of issues on tribal development vis-à-vis mega projects.
