Extent of Farmland Grabbing in the EU

This study looks at the rise of large-scale land deals, 'land grabbing', in the EU. It finds significant evidence that farmland grabbing is under way in the EU today. It discusses a number of the drivers of farmland grabbing in the EU and examines the impacts of farmland grabbing for European food security and food sovereignty, rural employment and vitality, and environmental sustainability. It argues that farmland grabbing, especially when connected to other burning European land issues, calls for a reform of European land governance.
