Applying frame-analysis and reframing for integrated conservation and development: Example from Mumbai

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


The way we frame a given problem structures the content that is brought into focus and thus the kinds of practical steps seen as necessary to alleviate it. In this article, I interrogate two competing partial framings implicated in ongoing controversy over mangrove destruction in Vikhroli East, Mumbai, which have precluded integrated conservation and development. I interrogate the competing frames by analyzing the content of each particular framing; identifying their respective “blind spots”; and evaluating the validity of various frame components. From this, I conclude with an exemplary alternative reframing arguably more conducive to social justice and sustainability in Vikhroli East and beyond.
