The International Development Society will host a debate on land grabbing in Africa with Dr Elisa Greco from the University of Manchester.
This discussion will be a reflection on what happens after the public focus has moved on, followed by the press, the international community and advocacy groups as the controversy of land grabs in Africa loses momentum.
Dr. Elisa Greco is a Research Associate in the Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Manchester. Dr. Greco's research interest is agrarian change from a critical political economy perspective. She is currently focusing on theoretical investigations of the global land grab, with particular reference to financialisation processes. Dr. Greco has published a number papers on resistance against land dispossession in Africa.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.
We kindly ask that externals and non-Westminster students register by emailing your name to csdcommunityproject@gmail.
