It was a shock to me. To feel, to see, to read, all these social conflict related to development, between the policy makers and the rural Amazonian people. While I come from Peru and right after finishing my bachelor studies in forestry science. I went to live and work in the Amazon rainforest. However, I realized there were people and there were social conflicts related to development. And which I was not able to explain and understand completely with only my natural science approach. That’s why I chose for the master of development and rural innovation in Wageningen University. Because it’s a very interdisciplinary master. And, it’s very well socially oriented to professionals and scholars with a background in life science. But also I chose the master because it gave me the opportunity to follow the study track of sociology, development and change. Which combines very well these developing issues I was encountering in the Amazon rainforest with biopolitics, governance, property rights and access to resources. After the master Development and Rural Innovations I feel much more power, much more confident in order to go back to the Amazon rainforest and to deal and work with all these developing issues and conflicts I was encountering before, between the Amazonian rural population and the policymakers in my country.
