PUBLICATION: Global Land Grabbing and Trajectories of Agrarian Change: A Preliminary Analysis
A new paper in the Journal of Agrarian Change.
‘Land grab’ has become a catch-all phrase to refer to the current explosion of (trans)national commercial land transactions mainly revolving around the production and export of food, animal feed, biofuels, timber and minerals.Two key dimensions of the current land grab -- namely, the politics of changes in land use and property relations change (and the links between them) -- are not sufﬁciently explored in the current literature.We attempt to address this gap by offering a preliminary analysis through an analytical approach that suggests some typologies as a step towards a fuller and better understanding of the politics of global land grabbing.
