Engagement with Land Use Conflicts in the North of Russia: Lessons from Anthropology


  • Prof. Joachim OTTO HABECK

Primary authors


Conflicts between pastoralism and extractive industries have been documented widely in anthropology. This paper will present examples of research on such conflicts over 30 years and across the North of Russia, aiming to develop a typology of power dynamics, strategies and key scenarios of confrontation. Further, it explores the range of political and ethical stances that anthropologists have been taking – from detached description to cautious solidarity and through to Action Anthropology. In conclusion, the paper will ask to what degree and in which ways anthropological research has successfully contributed to moderating or solving conflicts on land and resource use in Russia.
