The Great Goa Land Grab charts how shifting state governments, politicians, and corporations have acquired large tracts of land in the Indian coastal state of Goa for a wide range of projects, including industrial enclaves, real estate, and infrastructure. Based on extensive fieldwork carried out over 15 years, the book unpacks how political and economic interests in the state have increasingly aligned to capture land in Goa, often with decidedly negative consequences for people and the environment. By bringing the Goan experience into conversation with a larger literature on land politics in contemporary India, the book shows how the specific cases of land dispossession and community marginalization taking place in Goa are not unique, but follow a broader national and even global land trend.

Vital reading for citizens, activists, and planners, this book details how land grabbing occurs in Goa and how it impacts communities. The cases analyzed in The Great Goa Land Grab also offer insight into how Goa and other geographies can avoid future land grabs misaligned to the preferences and needs of land-dependent peoples.
