This collection of essays on Governing Global Land Deals provides new empirical and theoretical analyses of the relationships between global land grabs and processes of government and governance.
The book reframes debates on global land grabs by focusing on the relationship between large–scale land deals and processes of governance. The authors offer new theoretical insights into the different forms and effects of global land acquisitions, and illuminate both the micro–processes of transaction and expropriation, as well as the broader structural forces at play in global land deals.
Governing Global Land Deals provides new empirical data on the different actors involved in contemporary land deals occurring across the globe and focuses on the specific institutional, political, and economic contexts in which they are acting.
