Description

The project examines the drive behind rapid agrarian expansion in frontier regions of developing states. By introducing the notion ‘frontiers of contestation’ as an analytical category in understanding the consequences of rapid agrarian expansion in regions where resource frontiers and political borders interlock I wish to accentuate the multiple meanings of these regions. Particularly, how frontiers as zones of transition are created and transformed through state policies and local/global mediations.
