Abstract:This master's thesis in social anthropology explores local opinions and experiences of a state-led tourism development initiative in Addu Atoll of the Maldives called the Herathera project. The Herathera project is articulated through a specific government discourse on development. Through in-depth interviewing and participant observation this thesis reveals that although Addu people are highly sceptical and unsure whether the Herathera project would bring development to the region, they accept and support the government discourse that measures benefits to the community through a narrow economic lens that only defines development as increased employment opportunities as a result of tourism development. I argue that the narrow understanding of development used by the government fails to account for the social factors that limit Addu people benefiting from the Herathera project. I further argue that community development could be fostered through an active process of the community re-imagining the possibilities for their development.
