India's ambitious agenda of industrial and infrastructure growth has resulted in an increasing number of land conflicts. Voices of communities -- often the most marginalised sections of the society-- affected by such conflicts do not properly get heard on media platforms. Land Conflict Watch is trying to bridge this gap. So far, we have documented more than 720 land conflicts in India, affecting nearly 7 million people!
We are keen on expanding our team to ensure land conflicts are reported from the remotest corners of the country.
We are currently looking for researchers based in the states of Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura, Mizoram, Manipur, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan as well as in the Union Territories of Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Daman & Diu, Lakshadweep and Puducherry.
The researcher should have:
She/he will be paid per case study basis.
Perks of being a member of the LCW community:

Send us your resume, along with a cover letter on why you would like to work with us, to firstname.lastname@example.org latest by April 5, 2020, and we will get back to you at the earliest.
