Governance in 'rebellious' society

This project analyses the impact of long-term conflict on local governance in two cases: the secessionist Naga armed struggle (Northeast India) and the Maoist Naxalite conflict (Central India). The aim is to provide a political ethnography of governance in ‘rebellious society’, by conducting fieldwork in areas where the state and the rebels have been trying to set up governance structures.
