Struggles for Land Justice: Sharing strategies from the UK, Brazil and East Africa

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


A long history of land enclosure both in the UK and globally has left a legacy of deep societal disconnection from the land, and denied countless communities their right to pursue land-based livelihoods. But just as mass land dispossessions and the creeping enclosure of the commons are phenomena that are still ongoing today, the struggles for land justice and reclaiming our connection to the land are equally widespread. This session will shine a light on a variety of strategies being used to bring about land justice in different corners of the globe; learning from the histories of land and agrarian struggles in England, to the direct grassroots action of the Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra (MST) in Brazil, and from participatory videography with indigenous groups defending their territories in East Africa, to the pursuit of progressive land reform policy and legislation in Scotland.
