      Dr. Vandana Shiva is the founder and director of the Research
      Foundation
      for Science, Technology and Ecology (RFSTE), based in Dehra Dun, India.

      Since 1982, the foundation has focused on protecting people' s rights
      from
      threats to their environment by centralized systems of monoculture,
      forestry,
      agriculture and fisheries. Dr. Shiva's goal is to conduct research
      "with people,
      not on them" to create a greater understanding of "the interconnections
      in
      the web of life."

      Aside from her work with the RFSTE, Dr. Shiva has also written a number
      of
      books, including Stolen Harvest, Ecofeminism, Breakfast of
      Biodiversity: The
      Truth about Rain Forest Destruction, Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature
      and
      Knowledge, Staying Alive: Women, Ecology, and Development, and the
      recently
      published Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit.

      Institute's Fall 2003
