Global Land Forum 2018
"Every two-three years, the International Land Coalition (ILC) organises the Global Land Forum (GLF). This unique event brings together ILC members and other stakeholders from grassroots organisations, activists, local and international NGOs, and researchers, to multilateral organisations and government agencies from around the world to advance understanding of the complex and dynamic political, economic, environmental and social linkages between land governance, food security, poverty and democracy. Addressing the theme "United for Land Rights, Peace and Justice", this year's GLF will take place from 22 until 27 September 2018 in Bandung, Indonesia.
A team of GLI policy analysts will attend GLF, consisting of eight students (four undergraduate and four Master’s students) from the departments of Architecture, Geography, Law, Politics, and Urban Studies and Planning in the University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Social Sciences. The team comprises Jessica Burrows, Anwesha Chakraborty, Rebecca Claydon, Anna Fish, Bastian Harth, Calvin Kumala, Zuzana Majcova and Robyn Stewart. They will be joined by Dr Charis Enns from the Department of Geography and Dr Philipp Horn from the Department of Urban Studies."
