Land grabbing: Perspectives from East and Southeast Asia

An international academic conference, 5-6 June 2015, Chiang Mai University

Land grabbing, conflict and agrarian-environmental transformations: perspectives from East and Southeast Asia

Globally, powerful transnational actors are tapping into lands outside their own borders to provide sufficient food and energy security at home. The original North-South dynamic to this 'global land grab' is developing into a North-South-South dynamic with economically powerful non-Northern countries now getting involved.

This phrase - 'global land grab' - has become a catch-all to describe and analyse this explosion in transnational commercial land transactions. The reaction to this trend by state, corporate and civil society groups has been varied, moving between the extremes of seeing it as a major threat to the lives and livelihoods of rural people, to seeing it as an economic opportunity for the rural poor worldwide.

LDPI aims to provide in-depth and systematic enquiry into the global land grab in order to have deeper, meaningful and productive debates around causes and implications.
