Andrea Collins is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Political Studies at Queen’s University. Her ongoing thesis research focuses on the gendered dynamics of the multilevel governance of large-scale agricultural investment and land deals. Drawing on critical feminist political economy and global governance perspectives, this research integrates analysis of the local gender dynamics of land with analysis of global initiatives governing agricultural investment and land tenure. This work will assess the extent to which these initiatives will be able to meaningfully address gender inequalities in the governance of land.
