Abstract

The Karen and Hmong in Thailand have been significantly impacted by global and national environmentalist discourses. The Karen, traditionally viewed as conservationists, have had to abandon much of their local knowledge. Conversely, the Hmong - long stigmatised for their allegedly destructive swidden practices - have made significant modifications in their use of resources. ̀ 2003 The National University of Singapore.
