Madagascar aflame : landscape burning as peasant protest, resistance, or a resource management tool ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The state criminalizes burning due to concern that fire destroys the island's natural resources and blocks development. The resultant conflict over natural resource management provides a convenient window into questions of peasant protest and resistance, and into strategies of power in resource management. The A. shows that models of domination and resistance used to understand peasant-state relations in natural resource management are incomplete without, first, a consideration of the complex and ambiguous spaces between domination and resistance, between state and peasant, between protest and livelihood practices, and second, attention to the political-ecological context including resource ecology, rural livelihoods, and political discourse
