The Land Politics Reading Group brings together faculty and students at all levels from across the London institutions to read and discuss issues revolving around the commodification of land. We consider land as an asset (values, speculation, impact of shifting patterns of control on accumulation and inequality); land politics as making and unmaking state-recognized citizen groups and other collectivities; and land and state-building (-decay?) processes that revolve around territorial boundaries, projection of state power, division of territories and related political opportunity (political demobilization) structures, accumulation strategies, and class formation (non-formation).
