Abstract

One of the key responses to the global food crisis that hit the headlines in 2008 was a significant change in land ownership in many countries as a result of large-scale land acquisitions carried out by governments, investors, and corporations. This global land grab, or what some refer to as agricultural investment, is leading to fundamental shifts in agricultural production, land use, and labour relations. Peasant and farm organizations, rural communities, and social movements in the global North and global South are actively resisting these forces, structures, and processes of further accumulation by dispossession.
