Project Title: 
Global Land Grabbing II
Project Abstract: 
The Land Deal Politics Initiative (LDPI) organized an international academic workshop on ‘Global Land Grabbing’ held on 17-19 October 2012 at Cornell University. The event was co-organized and hosted by the Cornell Department of Development Sociology. Development experts, policy makers and academics from 32 countries met at Cornell University for three days to share information on the growing “feeding frenzy” for critical land and resources across the planet. 33 conference panels were prepared with 135 papers presented and five plenary sessions (see http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2015/04/land-project-build-three-years-collaboration).
