Common Property, Knowledge Systems and Contestation of Social Spaces

When examining the processes of disempowerment and marginalisation of communities and their resources, we find that at the centre of these processes lie the control and curtailment of knowledge production in particular by state institutions or corporate entities.  This book uses case studies from the Mekong region to explore how, in numerous ways,  indigenous or informal knowledge systems are produced and conserved and used to support their struggle over the contestation of social spaces and common property systems.
