    Asia, Cambodia, Myanmar

    Les politiques de développement agricole en Asie du Sud-Est s’accompagnent très souvent de mutations foncières qui ont deux visages complémentaires : concentration foncière et exclusion.

    En modifiant les perspectives de valorisation du foncier, les investissements dans l’irrigation tendent à renforcer ces tendances.

    La question du foncier irrigué fait cependant l’objet de relativement peu d’attention ; mieux la prendre en compte est pourtant crucial dans une perspective d’un développement économique et social des territoires qui soit durable.

    Africa, Mozambique

    Neste artigo apresentamos um breve olhar sobre a guerra civil em Moçambique, tendo como pano de fundo a obra de Christian Geffray, La Cause des Armes au Mozambique, que marca um ponto de viragem epistemológico nos estudos sobre as causalidades da guerra moçambicana. Pretendemos enquadrar essa discussão numa perspectiva antropológica mais vasta, dos denominados estudos sobre a antropologia da guerra, contribuindo igualmente com dados empíricos nossos, recolhidos ao longo de várias estadias de terreno na região centro de Moçambique, entre 1994 e 2001.

    Latin America and the Caribbean, Guatemala

    In Guatemala, a history of discrimination and inequality of opportunity led to a 36-year conflict that finally subsided with a Peace Agreement in 1996. Improvements since then have prevented a return to conflict and begun to create the conditions for sustained stability. However, the persistence of substantial inequality constitutes a risk factor for future stability and constrains Guatemala’s growth potential. Land distribution is highly unequal. The largest 2.5% of farms occupy nearly two-thirds of agricultural land while 90% of the farms are on only one-sixth of the agricultural land.

    Paralegals and Land Rights in Mozambique
    Reports & Research
    October, 2023

    The race for the exploitation of natural resources has brought challenges of different natures, including land conflicts, mainly between investors and the local population. In some cases, the resolution of problems has been unfair due to the lack of legal knowledge and representation to help the vulnerable population. It is in this context that the paralegal figure was established, endowed with solid knowledge to voluntarily provide basic legal support to community members.
