    This yearbook chapter discusses the link between international investment law and commercial pressures on the world’s natural resources. It argues that changes in legal frameworks are redefining control over natural resources, and facilitating transitions toward more commercialised land relations. As pressures on resources increase, many national laws undermine the rights of people impacted by investments. If not properly thought through, international treaties to protect foreign investment could compound shortcomings of local and national governance.

    Resumen: La instalación de un discurso de la "igualdad de género" en Chile y de nuevos referentes en torno a los significados de lo femenino y lo masculino desde la década de 1990, ha ido acompañada de un desplazamiento de la "cuestión de género" hacia un espectro de mujeres que no provienen del mundo feminista pero que, sin embargo, plantean demandas por condiciones más igualitarias respecto a los varones en los ámbitos en que se desenvuelven.

    This participatory video titled “We Can” was filmed, produced, and directed by a group of 11 farmers and community members from Damolgo and Sekoti, Ghana. With this video they want to communicate the message: ‘we can use our combined knowledge to address the land management challenges we face.’ The film features farmers describing the importance of trees, stone bunds, contour planting and vetiver grass strips, mulching and manuring and the negative effects of bush burning.
