The purpose of the Mekong Land Research Forum online site is to provide structured access to published and unpublished research on land issues in the Mekong Region. It is based on the premise that debates and decisions around land governance can be enhanced by drawing on the considerable volume of research, documented experience and action-based reflection that is available.
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)
