Abstract
"The research on which this paper is based focused on migrant shepherds, the Raikas, in semi-arid Rajasthan. This paper analyzes decision making among the Raika shepherds while they migrate. Through arriving at an understanding of decision-making amongst the shepherds, my research aims to accomplish two things. 1) Provide a support for the argument that the shepherd and herders make rational decisions. 2) Show where external interventions by policy-makers and development agencies will be more fruitful and effective."
