Karin Steen (Ph.D thesis, Lund University)

Investigates how access to and control over land and labour rights are governed by gender and how that determines men’s and women’s social goals in production and reproduction. Shows how land, besides being a natural resource for food production, is also an important social, cultural and intergenerational symbol, especially for men.
