PhD Title

Migration dynamics of people living in and around protected areas of India

PhD Research

My research focuses on the processes of relocation of indigenous peoples from Protected Areas of India. The forces of globalization, capitalism and neoliberalism lead to accumulation by dispossession and thus exploitation of people dependent upon natural resources. I would be looking at these processes from a gendered lens.
