landgrabbing / landraub / landnahme

Historically, in so-called developing and newly industrialized countries, from Africa to the Philippines, when inhabitants are forced off their land, sometimes by violent means, so that it can be leased or sold to plantations or mines and the like, this is called “land grabbing.” Between 2001 and 2010, as many as 230 million hectares of farmland changed hands this way in countries in the global South, with current and long-term devastating consequences for feeding local populations.
