How does land inequality connect with other forms of inequality and global crises?
Land inequality manifests in numerous ways, whether social, economic, political, environmental, or territorial. Most of these manifestations are inter-related and influence one another, resulting in the major global crises and trends that we see today. This webinar highlights the centrality of land inequality with respect to other forms of inequality, particularly economic inequality (as highlighted by the case of financial funds in Brazil and of bimodal agriculture in Colombia), gender inequality, and skewed labour relations (as shown by the case of Peru).
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- How land inequality connects with economic and political inequalities, the climate and environmental crisis, global health insecurity and related social issues.
- The main actors involved in the process of “financialisation” of land in Brazil, their investment strategies, and the environmental and social consequences of their activities.
- The consequences of large-scale agriculture in Colombia, and their impact on gender and intergenerational equality.
- The connection of land inequality with labour migration, labour relations, gender dynamics and poverty in Peru.
- How land inequality and gender inequality intersect, and what can be done to narrow the gender gap around land rights.
