The Mekong Land Research Forum seeks to bring research and policy a bit closer together. It does this in part by making the research more accessible and in part by helping to distill the key messages and points of debate so that information overload does not overwhelm policy makers and other advocates for progressive policy reform.
The new book Migration and Women’s Land Tenure Security in the Greater Mekong Sub-region draws on country-level and ethnographic research, based on a collaboration between FAO and Chiang Mai University. The book explores how migration affects women’s land tenure security, and in turn the ways in which women’s control over land shapes patterns of migration, through case studies in a Hmong community in northern Lao PDR, a Karenni community in eastern Myanmar and a village in north-eastern Thailand.
The book launch takes places on Wednesday 19th May from 13.30-14.30 (ICT)
