Campaign for the Forest Rights Act 2006

Reports & Research
December, 2007

This compilation is based on analysis of secondary documentation as well as interviews with members of the Campaign for Survival and Dignity on the process behind the passing of the Forest Rights Act 2006. This document is not meant to be a comprehensive analytical paper on the issue of 'forests'; 'adivasis' or 'forest rights'. It merely touches upon these aspects to provide a background to the process of bringing about the legislation. As a result many dimensions and dynamics of adivasis and forest struggles have not been covered here.
