Food Security, Conflict and Social Change in Assam

Assam is confronted with severe pressure on land and other economic assets. All too often however, food insecurity in both regions has been considered to be a strict matter of food production. This research project wants to go beyond this narrow idea of ‘food security’ by concentrating on the important issue of the access to assets (markets, land, etc.); it will do so by adopting a livelihoods approach to food security and conflict.
