Commentary piece on Land Grabs

Dear Friends,

Please check out a recent article I wrote summarizing and contextualizing
some of the excellent research that has been done on land grabs in South
Sudan by the Oakland Institute http://media.oaklandinstitute.org/special-investigation-understanding-land-investment-deals-africa and the Norwegian People’s Aid Report by David Deng . Its a short commentary piece.
I would love your thoughts on the issue or commentary.
