The Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) is pleased to invite to the Premiere of the Documentary Film
Rubber in a Rice Bowl
The documentary film has been produced by the SNIS in the framework of a multidisciplinary research project coordinated by Dr. Christophe Gironde (The Graduate Institute) on large scale land acquisitions in Southeast Asia.The documentary film addresses the topic of the current rubber boom and how it affects livelihoods and food security through the voices of the local population. It further raises the question as to how the local community takes part in the process of the agrarian transition driven by large scale rubber companies and to what extent it can benefit from the transformation.“Rubber in a Rice Bowl” tells the story of Cambodian farmers in a time of rapid change.
The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion, moderated by Jean-Luc Maurer, Honorary Professor, The Graduate Institute.
