Watch the full video of the workshop (above), where Thomas Crowley explores the environmental politics of the Delhi Ridge, a hilly area that cuts through the National Capital Territory.

In this talk, Crowley discusses how the land, was first imagined. He talks about the evolution of the Ridge from the commonly-owned land used for grazing and firewood collection to a state-owned forest area. Crowley’s presentation analyses the shifts in land use over the past many decades, and explores their implications for ecological and social justice in Delhi today.
