Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the phenomenom of land grabbing in South Sudan in the context of oppressors-oppressed distinction. It gives account of the recent land grabbing background on the African continent. It explores the characteristics of a power imbalance between local communities and foreing investors through the Freirean theoretical framework on oppression. The members of affected communities are not being consulted about the land deals which are brokered at the highest level of government in South Suden. Strategies of the affected communities to beat oppression are very limited and ineffective.
