Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
National Forum of Forest People and Forest Workers
This description of Roma Malik's work was prepared when Roma Malik was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Roma Malik has worked closely with forest tribes, local authorities, and the judicial system to design a forest governance model for her native India. She is ensuring that the marginalised forest tribes often neglected by the State are included in the policy-making process, and that they benefit from pending legislation. Her work is significant at a time of rapid privatisation of forest land and arbitrary regulation of the use of forest land by the government.
