Abstract

Global Governance 24 (2018), 41–60 ASEAN and Regional Responses to the Problem(s) of Land Grabbing Julie Gilson Popularly represented as the phenomenon of “land grab,” changes in the acquisition, exploitation and significance of land across the world encap- sulate myriad needs, motivations, and strategic ambitions. What is becom- ing clear is that these diverse burgeoning twenty-first-century phenomena in the name of land increasingly define and structure many of the deci- sions made by states and international institutions today. Despite being one of the most pressing regional and international problems of the cur- rent era, however, the issue of land grab is not on the agenda of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Member states of this association have acknowledged the transboundary effects of many contemporary phenomena and work together to alleviate security concerns and enhance collective economic opportunities, and yet they face both institutional and cognitive barriers to any attempts to address collectively the problems re- lated to land grabbing. This article aims to examine the contemporary po- litical space navigated and contested within ASEAN and to define the problems inherent in finding a collective action solution to this complex dynamic set of issues. KEYWORDS: ASEAN, land grab, regionalism.
