Master student from SGS interviewed in Indian media

News: Dec 06, 2017

Stina Johansson, master student in Global Studies at SGS, has received attention for her master’s thesis on water conflicts in India. Several news outlets have interviewed Stina about her research.

As part of her master thesis ‘Exploring Environmental Justice - a study on environmental movements’ engagements with water conflicts in Mangalore- India’, Stina Johansson received a scholarship to do a two-month field study, where she explored the role of four environmental groups in their struggle for just sustainable access to water from Netravathi River.

“My focus was on the engagement of movements who are active in struggles that somehow regards the Netravathi River, at four points; at the start in the Western Ghats, the Yettinahole Project, fresh water diversion-issues closer to Mangalore and the impact of sand mining on the river. It was interesting to highlight how one river engages groups on four different but connected, issues, and how important the relationship between people and nature is,” Stina Johansson told SGS.
