'This Water, Don't Take': Claims, Histories and Meanings
Nov 28, 2012, 12:30pm-2pm
This presentation offers insights into issues of access to justice by tracing the gains and losses in meaning across multiple accounts of a dispute that began with Adivasi protests against a Coca-Cola beverage plant in Kerala, South India. A sit-in agitation started by Adivasi residents of the area is now in its tenth year. Drawing upon extensive original archival, legal and ethnographic research, it is evident that meaningful resolution of the dispute requires a closer look at the processes and practices through which the meanings have been eclipsed.
