Timber Ban in North-East India

This paper looks at the impact of the Supreme Court ban on timber logging on the people of north-east India. Though the force of its impact is felt deeply across the entire region, the paper focuses on the state of Meghalaya, based on data collected from the villages of east and west Khasi Hills and Jaintia Hills district. Given the common socio-economic conditions and political history of the region, insights derived from the state are significant to understand the experiences of the people in the other north-eastern states.
