The positive response received on our paper on land acquisition has been overwhelming and has motivated us to further the analysis in this pertinent issue in developing countries. Our paper had touched upon the conceptual foundations of conflicts between "public good" and individual rights. We saw how certain individuals, who themselves may be a part of the "community" often give sacrifices arguably greater than community benefits. Such examples can be found in fields other than land acquisition.

We at RFGI are interested in looking at what such a conflict in different areas can help us understand governance that furthers public good, at the same time accounting for individual rights; and if these conflicts are inevitable,whether there is any coherent framework that holds together these conflicting rights. For this, we shall be delving more into other such examples of conflict and find take-aways for rights and governance at a more abstract level, that can be translated into lessons for policymakers.
