Short Abstract:

This panel explores the forms and extent of disjuncture between the centralised and bureaucratic forest governance structures and the forest management rights on the ground.

Long Abstract

In this panel, we seek to gather anthropological perspectives on the intersection of forestry and conservation through a wide range of ethnographic explorations of forestry legislation and its impacts on local livelihoods. We attend to the challenges and tensions that may arise between the state legislative bodies and local peoples in politically, socially, and culturally diverse milieux. Analytically, we explore the forms and extent of disjuncture between the centralised and bureaucratic forest governance structures and the forest management rights on the ground, and how the livelihoods of local communities are, in turn, shaped differently by the inconsistencies in forestry legislation in complex ways.
