Fieldwork journal 2015

This is an attempt to make an online field journal in keeping with the times.

My research focuses on the social narratives of peasant responses to land recovery in Duong Noi, Hanoi. I arrived here on the 2nd of September 2015 and I started going on field on the 5th of September and I’ll try to be in touch with the peasants until the 29th of September. I will also have a chance to talk to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Institute of Legislative Studies of the National Assembly, and international NGOs that have done research on the issue of land such as Oxfam and World Bank

Photos featured are on the everyday lives and struggles of the people in Hanoi.
