FY 2013/2014 Research Topic: C-34
Modern Agribusiness and Land Property in Latin America


This study looks at the property rights system for agricultural land as a determining factor of the agribusiness structure in Latin America. Property rights in land take various forms, such as open access, communal property, private property, and state property. Also, depending on the land rights in each country / region / commune, even global agribusiness enterprises have to adjust the production processes in their supply-chains according to each regional institution. In this study we will focus on the land for indigenous minority groups and ex-coca growers as the emerging issues of agricultural land policy in Latin America.
