Field Stories

AREU researchers are active in the field. Here, we bring you their observations from the field so as to help readers get a better sense of the smell and feel of the context. Our researchers draw attention to what stood out and why, what was different about their most recent trip back to the same district, as well as sharing the views they gleaned from residents in the areas where they spent time. Field Stories seeks to enrich our understanding of the environment by presenting views from the ground.
