Amnesty Lectures 2005 

This year's Oxford Amnesty Lectures are on the subject of Land Rights:

The thirteenth annual Oxford Amnesty Lectures series explore the various ways in which claims on the land might be imagined, argued and, most importantly, resolved in the world of the 21st century. Indigenous peoples and governments, industrialists and ecologists all use – or have at some stage to confront - the language of land rights. But what does it mean for a person or a people to invoke their 'rights' to land? What assumptions - economic, political, legal, philosophical, anthropological - does such a language imply?

A very interesting area, though I've no idea what these speakers will make of it.
