Documentary screening on a mining conflict in KwaZulu-Natal: This land
The Land & Accountability Research Centre (LARC) at the University of Cape Town commissioned the vivid documentary film This Land as a way for rural people to bring the untold story of their struggle for rights and accountability on communal land into urban forums of legislative, political and corporate decision-making.
This film screening has been jointly organized by the Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law, Governance and Society, the Anthropology Department and the Collaborative Research Group Africa in the World of the ASC Leiden.
The documentary screening will be followed by a Q&A. ASCL’s director Prof. Jan-Bart Gewald will be the chair.
