Abstract: "Recent initiatives by the Thai government to expand protected areas include the possible relocation of many Northern Thai villages, most-which are populated by ethnic minorities, from forest lands they have occupied for many generations. This policy is made possible in part by uncertainties in community resource tenure systems resulting from the expansion of the Thai state and of market forces. This paper examines the origins and effects of tenure uncertainties of people living in areas being incorporated into protected areas. It shows how local communities have coped with political and economic changes, and documents the existence and viability of local resource tenure institutions in interaction with state institutions."
