We would like to invite you to a special lecture given by Prof. Hossein Azadi (Ghent and Liege Universities in Belgium) on Rethinking Land Governance: From Land Conflict to Land Dialogue. The lecture will take place on Thursday 26th of January at 10 am in room D222, as well as online.
About the lecture and the author:
“Land” is the most basic resource. Yet, the competition for this resource, and hence conflict on land is increasing due to a number of factors including the globalization of the land market, commercialization, urbanization, climate change, migration, and other socio-economic and political issues. This seminar will discuss the role of land dialogue in resolving socio-economic and political issues that may arise during land conflicts in order to govern the land more efficiently.
Hossein Azadi is a professor at Ghent University and University of Liege in Belgium. Given his two PhDs in human geography and agri-rural development, he has been working on socio-economic and policy aspects of many agro-environmental projects using mixed-methodology (quantitative and qualitative), remote sensing/GIS, and decision support systems in many Asian, African, and European countries.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
