Fractured Forest: The Political Ecology of the Delhi Rdige

Fractured Forest: The Political Ecology of the Delhi RidgeThe Delhi Ridge hardly figures in the public imagination of the city. This was not always so. As recently as 2006, sizable protest movements rallied to preserve Ridge land.
Although the Ridge is discussed in various domains, the narratives remain scattered and hardly capture the vital interconnections between the Ridge and larger struggles for land and resources in the city.
Intercultural Resources (ICR) is bringing out a report in an attempt to renew focus on the Delhi Ridge whose survival is essential to Delhi’s environment and social well-being.

Fractured Forest:  The Political Ecology of the Delhi Ridge by Thomas Crowley, attempts to revive the long history of the Ridge along with the recent contestations over Ridge land as well as lay the foundation for a socially sensitive and historically informed approach to ecological justice in Ridge areas and in Delhi as a whole.

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
