The Global Land Grab

Beyond the Hype


The last two years have seen a huge amount of academic, policy-making and media interest in the increasingly contentious issue of land grabbingthe large-scale acquisition of land in the global South. It is a phenomenon against which locals seem defenceless, and one about which multilateral organizations such as the World Bank as well as civil society organizations and action NGOs have become increasingly vocal. This in-depth and empirically diverse volume, taking in case studies from across Africa, Asia and Latin America, takes a step back from the hype to explore a number of key questions: does the 'global land grab' actually exist? If so, what is new about it? And what, beyond the immediately visible dynamics and practices, are the real problems? A comprehensive and much-needed intervention on one of the most hotly contested but little-understood issues facing countires in the global South today.
