Chers/chères membres de l’ACÉDI,

Special Issue: Climate Change Policies, Land Grabbing and Conflict: Perspectives from Southeast Asia / Numéro thématique: Changement climatiques, accaparement des terres et conflits: perspectives de l'Asie du Sud-Est

Guest editors / Rédacteurs invités :  Esteve Corbera, Carol Hunsberger, Chayan Vaddhanaphuti and Saturnino M. Borras, Jr.


Note: a companion special issue has been published in Journal of Peasant Studies, issue 44(4).


“The articles in these two special issues are concerned with continuities and ruptures in processes of agrarian-environmental change in Southeast Asia. While climate change dominates the cases in one special issue and extraction via land-grabbing dominates those of the other, none of the authors takes conventional views of their specific research sites. Rather, the strength of these cases is that the authors bring new theoretical approaches, collaborative sensibilities, and hybrid perspectives on socio-natural histories and resource politics together with long-held concerns with the fates of smallholders, commodity productions under varied and opposing regimes, and a panoply of agrarian resources and activities including and beyond agriculture. Read them now! Many will become the new classics in Southeast Asian rural studies.”

Nancy Lee Peluso, University of California, Berkeley.
