In 2006, Conservation and Society showcased a debate on the topic of 'relocation of people from protected areas' (Volume 4, Number 3, 2006). The series comprised a historical and biological synthesis of relocation (Rangarajan & Shahabuddin), a global overview of eviction for conservation (Brockington & Igoe) and a number of responses from conservation professionals working on various aspects of the issue. These responses reflected divergent opinions on the historical, social, political and legal aspects of relocation and generated a great deal of interest from the journal's readership. In 2007, we published yet another set of responses (Volume 5, Issue 3, 2007).

In this issue (Volume 6, Issue 3, 2008), we are happy to introduce two more interesting additions to this debate. G. Viswanatha Reddy links the issue of human relocation to one of the critical issues that dominated conservation politics in India in recent years-the disappearance of tigers from Sariska National Park in Rajasthan, India-and argues that human pressures even under well managed situations may be compatible with wildlife conservation. Yash Veer Bhatnagar explores the issue of human-wildlife conflict and the call for inviolate spaces in the Greater and Trans-Himalayas, providing reasons as to why relocation of people is not a tenable option in these vast, poorly-studied regions.
