This work presents initial results of research into the complex relationships between the development of the land grabbing and agribusiness expansion in Brazil and Mozambique and their effects on the peasantry in both countries. We will examine the relations between the governments of Brazil and Mozambique in order to understand Brazil’s relatively recent involvement in land grabbing in Mozambique. This will inform our discussion of the role of Brazil as a country affected by land grabbing, while simultaneously promoting such practices in Mozambique.
