“Global change – local conflicts? Land conflicts in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa in the context of interdependent transformation processes” (GLOCON) is a Junior Research Group working on the correlation between global change and local conflicts over land. The research project explores how global spatial-temporal transformation processes affect local land conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Its focus lies furthermore on the analysis of systematic similarities and differences between those regions. GLOCON analyses and compares conflicts over land in a range of sub-Saharan and Latin American countries.
