Global and Local Land Markets
This presentation examines:
The problem of defining the 'local', since it is only made visible by the 'global' and the 'urban'.
The problem of defining the 'customary' historically (the customary largely defined and codified by colonial rule and appeals to the past and precedence).
The role of power, the market and social differentiation in defining the local.
The implications of institutionalising customary land administration for rural people and the peasantry.
Around the world, citizens' groups are taking action to change the way investments in natural resources are happening, to protect the rights of citizens and the environment for a fairer and more sustainable world. The Legal Tools for Citizen Empowerment initiative shares tools and tactics among practitioners.
