Led by Bernt Skåra
May 2011 - Dec 2002
MA Thesis in Human Geography, University of Oslo. This thesis examines the changes taking place in Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA) in the light of a general shift towards participatory approaches in development theory and policy. HMA in Mozambique is undergoing a transition that affects the very definition of the landmine problem: the focus of study is shifting from the minefield to the community. This thesis investigates whether the Landmine Impact Survey constitutes a substantial shift of focus towards local impact.
The thesis was submitted to the University of Oslo in May 2002 and defended in June 2002.
