Land Dispossession in Rural China and India

The purpose of the proposed conference is to begin a substantial conversation between scholars who study rural land dispossession in India and China. This interaction should prove very valuable for both sides. It will allow the development of comparative perspectives that can provide analytical leverage for explaining particular developments in each country. It should also help inspire common theoretical frameworks for analyzing rural land dispossession not only in China and India, but also in other developing countries.
