    Sub-Saharan Africa

    Nous n'héritons pas de la terre de nos parents, nous l'empruntons à nos enfants. Cette conception de la relation de l'homme à la terre est encore plus prégnante dans les traditions africaines où "la terre appartient à une grande famille, dont beaucoup de membres sont morts, quelques-uns sont vivants et dont le plus grand nombre est encore à naître". Le phénomène d'acquisition massive des terres a pris ces dernières années, une ampleur effrayante.

    Cambodia’s Unofficial Regime of Extraction: Illicit Logging in the Shadow of Transnational Governanc
    Peer-reviewed publication
    May, 2015
    Cambodia

    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.
