Land Conflicts Across Frontiers : contested spaces in Myanmar & North East India

 
Reshmi Banerjee (Author)
Synopsis

Land Conflicts Across Frontiers compares Myanmar's journey with North East India on the critical and contested issue of land. It examines concerns related to land in pre-colonial and colonial history, causes and consequences of land conflicts today, the socioeconomic dynamics attached to land, along with attempted community-based institutional interventions and rural activism. As Myanmar takes its steps towards a democratic future, it becomes critical for the country to be aware of North East India's experiences, as they could provide valuable lessons of what to 'implement' and what to 'avoid'. Loss of common property resources, non-recognition of customary rights, ambiguous land laws and inadequate attention to people's grievances have led to a rural landscape which has witnessed livelihood vulnerability, displacement and conflict.The book not only tries to capture cross-border experiences in order to have a better understanding of land alienation, agrarian discontent and peripheral marginalization but also notes recent trends in rural spaces and suggests policy measures.
