Special issue: Governing global land deals

greengrabs3A special issue of the journal Development and Change, entitled Governing Global Land Deals: The Role of the State in the Rush for Land, is the latest of a series exploring global land, water and green grabs.

This has been part of the work of the Land Deal Politics Initiative, and supported by the land theme of the Future Agricultures Consortium. Many of the papers published were originally presented in two major conferences held at the Institute of Development Studies, Sussex in 2011 and at Cornell University in 2012.
