This study investigated three key aspects influencing negotiations for the purpose of understanding how the gains were made from the khas (state) land by extremely poor households. These were: 1) if and how intra-household dynamics and characteristics impacted the negotiations; 2) if and how the local socio-political situation and the location of the land bear influence and 3) how the extremely poor‘s relationships with external agencies including markets, the state and institutions have an impact on the negotiation process and how the land is made productive.
