Conflict, displacement, and its impact on the livelihood of Gujjar and Bakerwal community of Jammu Region

Author(s):

Irfaz Ahmed Afsana

Abstract:

The Gujjar and Bakerwal are two Scheduled Tribes communities of Jammu and Kashmir, which practice transhumance activity. The recent developments in the state have imposed some restrictions on their mobility. The practice of transhumance has become very difficult for them as the areas available to them for grazing have been captured by the security forces of the state. This paper attempts to analyze the impact of conflict and displacement on their livelihood. It will also explore the form of displacement from 1947 onwards because of armed conflict, internal strife and rise of nationalist forces in the region.
