M.A. in Land & Livelihood Studies

Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology
Campus 2 years July 2018 India Bangalore

Access to land is a key determinant for livelihood security, and it is becoming highly contested in rural and urban areas. Increasingly, livelihoods based directly from land are becoming precarious; and land for the basic necessity of housing is also becoming unaffordable. In the last two decades we have witnessed changes in the pattern of investments and the nature of industrialization, growth of the service sector, rapid urbanization, agrarian distress, and rather polarized environmental debates. These changes have added a new dimension to the set of relationships that have previously determined ownership of land, work based on land including labour, the environmental quality of land, and food security. The increasing commodification of land is contributing to widening inequalities in rural and urban communities. Moreover “livelihoods” are also being fetishized in many State and non-State interventions, where people are viewed only as beneficiaries, and not as real actors with their own sense of agency. [+]

The increasing commodification of land is contributing to widening inequalities in rural and urban communities. Moreover “livelihoods” are also being fetishized in many State and non-State interventions, where people are viewed only as beneficiaries, and not as real actors with their own sense of agency. Given that the overarching economic processes are mediating access to land and livelihoods in many different ways today, it has become imperative to study the issues of land and livelihood in a trans-disciplinary manner, and reorient the way in which we approach questions about who gains access and who controls access to land and how, and the changing meaning, value, and nature of land and land based livelihoods. We imagine that design thinking when integrated with theoretical engagement and context-specific... [-]
