The course is designed for academics; as well as for practitioners from development organisations, projects and governments who are interested in or work in the fields of land governance, development studies, natural resource management, planning, human rights and conflict studies.
Participants will acquire up-to-date knowledge on new land pressures and learn how to place these in broader theoretical contexts and policy debates from the local to the international level. The programme includes interactive mini-courses, lectures and solution-oriented workshops. The discussions will be held from a range of perspectives, with contributions from Dutch and international academics as well as development practitioners, representatives of farmers’ organisations and government policy advisors.
The tutorials in the two-week course provide a general overview of important themes such as the global land rush, land governance, land administration and land issues in post-conflict situations. A mix of illustrative case studies completes the overview.
The application deadline is 01 June 2018.
