The Conference coincides with the 6th LANDac Summer School ‘Land Governance for Development’.

Participants of the Conference can also register for the annual LANDac summer school ‘Land Governance for Development’ that will take place from 6 – 17 July in Utrecht.

The two-week LANDac summer school provides a multidisciplinary analysis of the various dimensions of land governance in Africa, Asia, Latin America and beyond. Participants acquire up-to-date knowledge on new land pressures and learn how to place these in broader theoretical contexts and policy debates. Participants also learn about best practices in land governance from different perspectives and initiatives at local, national and international levels. Topics are discussed in interactive mini-courses, lectures, and solution-oriented workshops. The discount price for the 2-week course is € 900 € 700 (course + course materials + conference participation + housing)/ € 560 € 360 (course + course materials + conference participation).
