Land Tenure, Gender, and Globalization: Research and Analysis from Africa, Asia, and Latin America

 
9788189884727: Land Tenure, Gender, and Globalization: Research and Analysis from Africa, Asia, and Latin America

Drawing from field research in Cameroon, Ghana, Viet Nam and the Amazon forests of South America, this book explores the relationship between gender and land, revealing the workings of global capital and of people's responses to it.

A central theme is the people's reseitance to global forces, frequently through an insistence on the uniqueness of their livelihoods. The book addresses a gap in the literature on land tenure and gender in developing countries. It raises new questions about the process of globalisation, particularly about who the actors are (local people, the state, NGOs, multinational companies) and the shifting relations among them. The book also challenges the very concepts of gender, landa and globalisation.

Book Description Cambridge University Press/ Zubaan, 2010. Softcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Drawing from field research in Cameroon, Ghana, Viet Nam, and the Amazon forests of Brazil, Bolivia, and Peru, this book explores the relationship between gender and land, revealing the workings of global capital and of people`s responses to it. A central theme is the people`s resistance to global forces, frequently through an insistence on the uniqueness of their livelihoods. For instance, in the Amazon, the focus is on the social movements that have emerged in the context of struggles over land rights concerning the extraction of Brazil nuts and babaçu kernels in an increasingly globalised market. In Viet Nam, the process of ?de-collectivizing? rights to land is examined with a view to understand how gender and other social differences are reworked in a market economy. The book addresses a gap in the literature on land tenure and gender in developing countries. It raises new questions about the process of globalisation, particularly about who the actors are (local people, the state, NGOs, multinational companies) and the shifting relations among them. The book also challenges the very concepts of gender, land and globalisation. Contents Foreword 1. Introduction 2. Gender, Land Tenure and Globalisation: Exploring the Conceptual Ground 3. Gender, Globalisation and Land Tenure: Methodological Challenges and Insights 4. Economic Liberalisation, Changing Resource Tenures and Gendered Livelihoods: A Study of Small-Scale Gold Mining and Mangrove Exploitation in Rural Ghana 5. The Politics of Gender, Land and Compensation in Communities Traversed by the Chad-Cameroon Oil Pipeline Project in Cameroon 6. Facing Globalisation: Gender and Land at Stake in the Amazonian Forests of Bolivia, Brazil and Peru 7. Gender, Kinship and Agrarian Transitions in Vietnam 8. Conclusion: For a Politics of Difference 9. Notes on Contributors Printed Pages: 312. Bookseller Inventory # 27432
