    Large-Scale Land Acquisitions in Gabon

    Publicación revisada por pares
    Abril, 2021

    For the past decade, the land rush discourse has analyzed foreign investment in land and agriculture around the world, with Africa being a continent of particular focus due to the scale of acquisitions that have taken place. Gabon, a largely forested state in Central Africa, has been neglected in the land rush conversations, despite having over half of its land allocated to forestry, agriculture, and mining concessions. This paper draws on existing evidence and contributes new empirical data through expert interviews to fill this critical knowledge gap.

    “Why would anyone leave?”: Development, overindebtedness, and migration in Guatemala
    Publicación revisada por pares
    Noviembre, 2021

    Over the past two decades, policymakers have expressed considerable optimism about the capacity of international development to curb transnational migration, yet there is a dearth of research examining how and under what conditions development interventions impact migration decisions. Enlisting a case study approach in the Maya-K’iche’ community of Almolonga, this article examines divergent meanings and practices of “development” and its impact on the migratory aspirations and outcomes of Indigenous families in Guatemala.

    Frontier finance: the role of microfinance in debt and violence in post-conflict Timor-Leste
    Publicación revisada por pares
    Abril, 2020

    Microfinance programs targeting poor women are considered a ‘prudent’ first step for international financial institutions seeking to rebuild post conflict economies. IFIs continue to visibly support microfinance despite evidence and growing consensus that microfinance neither reduces poverty nor breaks the cycle of domestic violence. In the case of Timor-Leste, a feminist political economy approach reveals how microfinance engendered debt allows for the control, extraction, and accumulation of profits and resources by an elite class and exacerbates gender-based violence.

    La notion d’accaparement de terres à l’épreuve du cas ivoirien

    Publicación revisada por pares
    Octubre, 2018
    Côte d'Ivoire

    La notion d’accaparement de terres est devenue courante dans l’étude d’un grand nombre de transformations agraires en cours dans les Suds. Elle souffre cependant d’un grand flou définitionnel et des difficultés à établir clairement le périmètre de son objet. À partir d’études de cas tirés du terrain ivoirien, cette contribution propose de redéfinir ce champ d’études afin de tenir compte à la fois de l’émergence d’un problème public qui est l’accaparement des terres et des transformations dans l’économie politique du capitalisme agraire que ce terme recouvre.

    Land adjudication constitute a series of sequential steps that if followed carefully and correctly, can lead to a sufficient determination of the varied interests in land including whether, and where they overlap, complement, conflict or compete with each other. This is a preliminary study aiming to find out how the adjudication process as it is conducted in the context of a fit-for-purpose land administration (FFPLA). A framework of components for adjudication in the FFPLA context is first developed.

    Food security and the functioning of wheat markets in Eurasia
    Publicación revisada por pares
    Mayo, 2019
    Asia central, Tayikistán

    We investigated wheat price relationships between the import-dependent countries in Central Asia and the South Caucasus and the Black Sea wheat exporters to assess wheat market efficiency. This is crucial for ensuring availability and access to wheat and for reducing food insecurity. Results from linear and threshold error correction models suggested a strong influence of trade costs on market integration in Central Asia, while those costs were of minor importance in the South Caucasus.

    Cambodia’s Unofficial Regime of Extraction: Illicit Logging in the Shadow of Transnational Governanc
    Publicación revisada por pares
    Mayo, 2015

    Cambodia has recently demonstrated one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world. While scholars have long explored the drivers of tropical forest loss, the case of Cambodia offers particular insights into the role of the state where transnational governance and regional integration are increasingly the norm. Given the significant role logging rents play in Cambodia’s post-conflict state formation, this article explores the contemporary regime and its ongoing codependent relationship with forested land.
