Frontiers of expansion: land acquisition and control for GM soya cultivation in South America and beyond. Implications for equitable and sustainable development

The aim of the current project is to gain a better understanding of current processes of land acquisition related to the rapidly expanding ‘soya frontier’ in South America, by analyzing how soya production rapidly increased, first in Argentina, but then spreading into Paraguay and other countries of the region. Today, there are clear indications that the frontier is also moving from South America in the direction of Africa (i.e. connections between Argentina-Brazil South Africa and Mozambique).
