Socio-Economic and Political Aspects of Contemporary and Historical Land Issues

A section of Land (ISSN 2073-445X).

Section Information

This section of the journal Land promotes socio-economic and political investigations of contemporary and historical land issues. It explores land broadly, from property to land use and access to land, in rural and urban settings in different parts of the world. It does so by focusing on original studies of socio-economic relations, politics and dynamics of power, as well as processes of change, both from a historical and contemporary perspective.

It encourages work within a broad interdisciplinary framework, grounded in theory and based on strong empirical foundation, serving as a forum for exchange of ideas and information, scholarly analyses and policy debate on rural and urban land issues. Contributions from economists, political economists, socio-economists, development economists as well as sociologists, political scientists committed to the rigorous study and analysis of land issues are welcome.
