Summary
Large-scale land acquisitions have become one of the most talked about and contentious topics amongst those studying, working in or writing about Africa. Some have welcomed this trend as a bearer of new livelihood opportunities. Others have countered by pointing to negative social impacts. Lorenzo Cotula casts a critical eye over the most reliable evidence on this hotly contested topic, examining the implications of land deals in Africa both for its people and for world agriculture and food security
