Long Abstract:

With a focus on: the enduring land question in parts of Africa, and the role of intellectuals. In some parts of Africa, the colonial heritage is particularly visible in an enduring land question, with a continued struggle about ownership and management of agricultural and mining land and property. Intellectuals who became ’action researchers’ in favour of land redistribution often had to cope with forms of violence, racism, and nationalism, that challenged their integrity. How did they cope with that?
