Research on informal markets and trade

Numerous former participants of CCC continue to work in various research projects. Part of CCC were for example Ana Ramazashvili and Zviad Mirtskhulava. Both are working as PhD students in the project “Informal Markets and Trade in Eurasia“, coordinated by Susanne Fehlings who was part of the CCC organising team.

The project aims at researching “the role of local markets and the informal circulation of traders and goods across the Caucasus and Central Asia”. This project challenges the classic anthropological fieldwork which consisted generally in extensive research in one place. Here, the researchers follow the goods and the people.

Ana just published a report on her research in India (the picture above is from her). In reading her text and the entire website you can follow this project and the research between the Far East and the Caucasus.
