This week's Gearty Grilling: Catherine Boone on land rights in Africa

Catherine Boone discusses how land and property issues lie at the core of political conflict in Africa in the latest Gearty Grilling.

She joined LSE last year as Professor of Comparative Politics and African Political Economy, and is currently serving on the steering committee of the American Political Science Association's Africa Initiative and the Advisory Board of the Social Science Research Council's African Peacebuilding Network.

Professor Boone is the third LSE academic to take part in the new weekly series of short, to-the-point video debates from LSE’s Institute of Public Affairs|| (IPA) on key issues affecting the world today. Conor Gearty, director of the IPA and professor of human rights law, subjects academics to a five-minute grilling to showcase the School's world class research and faculty.
