Protecting Indigenous Land from Mining. A study of activist representations of indigenous people, in the context of anti-mining movements, with a focus on an Indian case.

This research project explores the activism that supported an indigenous community in India in its protest against a bauxite mining project that would have resulted in the acquisition of the community’s sacred land. It examines how the community was supported and represented by domestic and international activists, and how the activism influenced the banning of the mining project. The thesis provides important lessons for those striving for sustainable landscapes.
