Conflicts over Natural Resources and Legal Pluralism: A Case Study from Orissa
The paper explores the different conceptualisations of ‘property rights’ over forest and the emerging conflicts from a ‘legal pluralism’ perspective. It argues that the inability on the part of the State law to accommodate the customary rights of several stakeholders over the same forest resource has resulted in serious conflict among the resource users. Thus, to acknowledge the existence of several sets of law and to work within the framework of legal pluralism may serve as a way to minimize the conflicts and ensure effective and sustainable use and management of natural resource.
