PUBLICATION: Land grabbing in Kenya and Mozambique (FIAN International)
FIAN International presents a report on two research missions and a human rights analysis of land grabbing.
The report introduces a human rights framework to analyze land grabbing, based on the rights to adequate food, to adequate housing, to an adequate standard of living including access to resources, the right to work and the rights to information and political participation. It recalls the rights of indigenous peoples, the right to self-determination and the right not to be deprived of one’s means of subsistence. This framework is applied to two cases on land grabbing in the Tana River delta (Kenya), to the Yala Swamp case (Kenya) and to the Massingir case (Mozambique).
