Natural resource grabbing has become an increasingly prominent topic in academic circles, among development practitioners and in policy arenas. This series aims to sustain this intellectual momentum by advancing methodological, theoretical and empirical insights. The series will present and discuss ‘resource grabbing’ research in a holistic manner by addressing how the rush for land and other natural resources (water, forests, minerals, etc.) is intertwined with agriculture, mining, tourism, energy, carbon markets, climate change, and disasters.
