TRAINING: Land Governance for Development
The 2012 Utrecht Summerschool on Land Governance for Development will be offered from 2 - 13 July, 2012 at Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
In July 2012 LANDac organises the third Utrecht Summerschool Land Governance for Development. The two-week intensive course will introduce students to the multiple dimensions of land governance in Africa, Asia, Latin America and beyond. Students will acquire the most up-to-date knowledge on new land pressures and learn how to place these in broader theoretical debates. In addition, they will learn about best practices in land governance from different contexts and on different levels: local, national and international. The guiding question is how to optimize the link between land governance, sustainable development and poverty alleviation. At the end of this course students will have a thorough knowledge of current problems related to land and development, but they will also have practical knowledge of possible solutions. The topics are discussed in mini-courses including lectures and solution-oriented practicals led by recognised experts from academia, policy and practice. The course is useful for Masters' students, academics and practitioners from anywhere in the world who are interested in or work in the fields of land governance, development studies, natural resource management, conflict studies etc.
Deadline: May 1, 2012
