Abstract:Following her briefing in the previous issue of ROAPE (vol. 39, no. 133, 2012, p. 500-511) the author's present contribution again uses evidence from Senegal to explore the interests and actions of major participants in the struggle to transform African agriculture: government, national elites, peasants and their civil society allies. In the first section she examines government motivations in facilitating land grabs; in the second she reviews a seminal land grab case in the Senegal River Valley that illustrates the growing sophistication of the peasant pushback and the emergence of an anti-land grab coalition between civil society and peasant organizations.
