  • Introduction: New Perspectives from PhD Field Research
    • Authors: Marika Djolai; Eric Kasper, Ricardo Santos, Shilpi Srivastava, Linda Waldman
      First page: 1
      Abstract: In this introduction, we discuss some of the common issues and experiences expressed in the seven articles of this IDS Bulletin. This issue is a platform for IDS PhD researchers to reflect on their fieldwork experiences, including research‐related challenges, as well as cultural and personal encounters along the way. The authors also develop theoretically‐informed arguments about their research findings. As editors, we offer further reflections on the importance of fieldwork as part of the transformative experience of ‘doing a PhD’ in Development Studies. We suggest that the collection of articles in this IDS Bulletin represents a vision for the future of Development Studies research in which the human, relational and public work elements of research are emphasised throughout the contested process of working for change.

  • Weighing Up the Risks: The Challenge of Studying ‘Risk’ in
           Empirical Research
    • Authors: Stephen Whitfield
      First page: 7
      Abstract: Studying multifaceted risks that are simultaneously and differently perceived and experienced presents significant challenges, but gaining insight into multiple realities and rationalities is crucial for achieving effective and collaborative governance. This article describes the challenges of a recent study that looked at how different actors, ranging from smallholder farmers to international biotechnology development projects, weigh up the risks associated with the uncertain future of maize agriculture in Kenya. It presents personal reflections on a 12‐month experience of applying a multi‐sited, ethnographic research approach in Kenya and the UK, in an attempt to observe the creation, perception and experience of risks. The article demonstrates the importance of history, knowledge, social and institutional settings, trust and politics in the ways that risks are created, perceived and experienced by these different actors, and argues for the necessity of engaging with these highly contextualised processes at individual, local and institutional levels.

  • Performing Peace‐building – Conferences, Rituals and the Role
           of Ethnographic Research
    • Authors: Tobias Denskus
      First page: 18
      Abstract: This article explores performance and ritual theory in the context of anthropological research on peace‐building institutions and knowledge discourses, as well as the process of writing up an ethnographic PhD thesis. Based on fieldwork in Germany and Nepal, the article's aim is to expand the theoretical scope of ‘aidnography’ and apply it to knowledge management, workshops, global conferences and the author's performance in these spaces. The article analyses how a potentially critical and contested concept such as liberal peace‐building has been absorbed by an emerging ritual economy of indoor events, policy papers and transnational actors. These strategies of organisational and professional self‐promotion create depoliticised action and products in the context of global aid chain management.

  • The Power of Wellbeing Discourses among Indigenous and
           Non‐Indigenous People in Mexico
    • Authors: Juan Jaime Loera‐Gonzalez
      First page: 29
      Abstract: This article focuses on local perceptions of wellbeing, their underlying social and power relations and the resulting cultural resistance by Rarámuri indigenous people in the Tarahumara region, Mexico. It is based on findings from doctoral research that argues that understandings of wellbeing must be analysed in conjunction with its sociocultural and political context and in relation to ethnic differences. In this sense, the article presents evidence that shows how Rarámuri people hold discursive understandings of wellbeing which evoke differentiated ways of living compared to those accounts described both in mainstream development thinking and those which occur in Mexico's wider society. Similarly, the article considers the value of ethnography, semi‐structured interviews and participant observation as a tool in documenting notions of wellbeing and what Rarámuri people value, as well as exploring reflections, fieldwork experiences, and methodological challenges encountered while doing fieldwork research.

  • Why Participation Matters: Communal Drinking Water Management in Bolivia
           and Ecuador
    • Authors: Maria Teresa Armijos; Anna Maria Walnycki
      First page: 43
      Abstract: In the past 30 years, Drinking Water Users' Associations (DWUAs) have emerged in peri‐urban and rural areas in Bolivia and Ecuador where public utilities do not operate. While recognising the challenges to service provision and the problematic around the role of the state that exists in both countries, this article seeks to understand why and how local participation in drinking water systems has been so important for the formation of newly formed peri‐urban and rural communities in both Andean nations. It argues that through participation in collective (communal) activities and decision‐making, communities are constructed. This article will highlight, through our own experiences, why it became so important for us as researchers to participate in communal water management activities during fieldwork.

  • The Necessity of Engaging with Politics: Lessons from the Grass Roots in
           South India
    • Authors: Sunita Abraham
      First page: 56
      Abstract: This article highlights the growing role, relevance and practice of politics in the everyday lives of poor people and grass roots NGOs, in relation to rural local government. It draws on experiences from a case study gram panchayat (lowest tier of local government) in the south Indian state of Karnataka. The analysis focuses on the period 1994–2006. The article describes how poor people who engage actively in different aspects of political participation are better able to influence the functioning of local government and the disbursal of material benefits from it. In doing so, it argues that this engagement is becoming more of a necessity for poor people. Even those who are reluctant find that political participation enables them to voice their demands and challenge dominant interests more advantageously.

  • State‐Dominated Civil Society and Migrant Children's Education in
    • Authors: Myra Pong
      First page: 70
      Abstract: In China, the ‘tidal wave’ of rural migrant workers has created unique challenges for the government, one being migrant children's education in cities. Despite central policies emphasising the roles of receiving governments and public schools in providing compulsory education for these children, many migrant children in Beijing still attend privately run, often unlicensed migrant schools. Though migrant children's education is attracting increasing government and societal attention, questions concerning the extent to which this decentralisation of responsibilities has created space for civil society in the policy process remain unexplored. This article examines the role of the civil society actors involved and draws on qualitative interviews and the author's fieldwork experience to show that their limited capacity to significantly impact the situations of these schools is shaped by a lack of state–civil society interaction, as well as limited collaboration between key civil society actors and low levels of interaction amongst the schools themselves.

  • The Disjuncture between Gendered Legislation and the Practice of Urban
           Planning: A Case Study of the Swaziland Urban Development Project
    • Authors: Hloniphile Y. Simelane
      First page: 83
      Abstract: This study examines the disjuncture between gender‐neutral legislation, state policies in particular, and the implementation of the Swaziland Urban Development Project (SUDP), an integrated development project co‐funded by the World Bank and the Swaziland government. The project provided the opportunity to introduce gender‐neutral land‐related policies to improve women's access to land ownership in informal settlements. Using qualitative research methods and empirical evidence from the SUDP, this study assesses the environment in which patriarchal practices are reinforced. The study also advocates the formulation of gendered policies and a review of the institutions and structures underlying social relations and the control of resources. It argues that legislative measures alone are insufficient to improve the status of women in terms of land ownership. Finally, the study proposes the necessary policy conditions in which the SUDP's gender‐neutral approach can effectively foster land redistribution.
