The paper discusses the recent developments of FDI in land in developing countries. Two issues are analyzed: the first is the available evidence on the so called “land grab” and the associated question of the role of control on land in the internationalisation of developing countries agricultural production. The second is the problem of the risks of such large land deals and the possible function of corporate social responsibility in mitigating them.
