The article explores the indigenous land struggles for land in Ecuador through a Polanyian lens


The Journal of Agrarian Change has just published an article by UCL Americas alumnus Geoff Goodwin, titled: 'Fictitious commodification and agrarian change: Indigenous peoples and land markets in Highland Ecuador'.

This is the third article issuing from his dissertation, 'The double movement in the Andes: land reform, land markets and indigenous mobilisation in Highland Ecuador', which he completed at UCL Americas in 2014 under the supervision of Dr Graham Woodgate and Professor Diego Sanchez-Ancochea (University of Oxford).

The Journal of Agrarian Change is an interdisciplinary academic journal which promotes investigation of the social relations and dynamics of production, property and power in agrarian formations and their processes of change, both historical and contemporary.

Dr Goodwin is currently a Departmental Lecturer in Development Studies at the University of Oxford. He was one of the founding members of the Radical Americas Network.
