Innocenti Working Papers Commercial Pressures on Land and Their Impact on Child Rights: A review of the literature AUTHOR(S) Bethelhem Ketsela Moulat; Ian Brand-Weiner; Ereblina Elezaj; Lucia Luzi Published: 2012 Innocenti Working Papers This paper aims to provide a comprehensive review of the existing literature on the political economy of CPLs with the specific intention of mapping the relevant channels of impact on the rights and well-being of children living in rural areas where CPLs are fast-proliferating. Although there are some documented benefits, according to the large majority of the literature reviewed, the twin outcomes of displacement and dispossession are found to be critical negative socio-economic changes resulting from CPLs. In conjunction with a pervasive lack of transparency in the land transfer negotiation and implementation processes, the twin outcomes are in turn associated with a number of transmission channels that can impact the rights and well-being of children in affected rural communities. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 88 | Thematic area: Child Work and Labour, Children's Participation, Conflict and Displacement, Governance, Migration | Tags: business economics, displaced children, equal access, land acquisition, land speculation, marginality × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Bethelhem Ketsela Moulat; Ian Brand-Weiner; Ereblina Elezaj; Lucia Luzi 2012 Commercial Pressures on Land and Their Impact on Child Rights: A review of the literature. , pp. 88.
