LDPI Working Papers

ldpi-logoThe Land Deal Politics Initiative provides a global platform to generate solid evidence on the ‘global land grab’ phenomenon through detailed, field-based research.

The LDPI Working Paper Series is the main initial publication outlet of the research outputs from the initiative. Many have been written through support from the LDPI’s Small Grants Programme.

Future Agricultures also publishes its own series of papers on a variety of themes: see the main Working Papers collection.
