    Women disproportionately bear the negative impacts of large-scale land investments (in agribusiness, extractives, logging) in the global South.

    ▪▪Lack of formal land rights and their subordinate role in the household and community lead to the marginalization of women in decision-making processes and the bypassing of them in the distribution of compensation and the planning and implementation of resettlement.

    While academics have largely shifted their focus from ‘women in development’ to addressing women and men as
    part of broader ‘gendered’ social relations, this shift is yet to be fully translated into development practice. This
    requires development practitioners to be sensitive to local contexts and to the various inequalities they contain
    with regards to land rights and land use (based on class, gender, age, migration status etc.).

    Countries of the Near East, North Africa, Europe and Central Asia (NEN) region face a myriad of social, economic and political challenges that have stalled their structural and rural transformation processes. This has had a detrimental impacton rural youth, who, as a result, face limited economic opportunities. The NEN region has the highest youth unemployment rates in the world.

    There is wide engagement with large-scale land deals in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly from the perspectives of development and international political economy. Recently, scholars have increasingly pointed to a gendered lacuna in this literature. Engagement with gender tends to focus on potential differential impacts for men and women, and it also flags the need for more detailed empirical research of specific land deals.

    markdownabstractThe aim of the thesis is to understand the impact of large-scale foreign land acquisitions on rural households. The rapid expansion of large-scale land acquisition (LSLA) by foreign investors in developing countries over the past 10 years has precipitated a heated debate over the impacts on rural households in the recipient regions. LSLA brings often much-needed investment to agriculture in developing countries, potentially raising productivity, and creating rental and labour opportunities from which rural households can benefit.

    The security of women’s entitlement to land and land-based resources in the East Africa region has been compromised by a combination of unfavourable laws and government policies, socio-economic change toward greater commoditization of and competition for land and land-based resources, and exclusionary practices defended as ‘customary’. Law, policy, and practice have excluded women in land ownership and control and made their access tenuous.

    The marginalization of women with regard to property ownership has hampered efforts for poverty alleviation and the improvement of livelihoods. In Uganda, current institutionalization of land reform necessitates inquiry, to determine whether women’s status has changed under new provisions. The Succession Act makes some helpful provisions but also presents loopholes, which can be exploited by illegitimate claimants.
