CAS and the Centre for African Area Studies (CAAS) at Kyoto University held a very successful colloquium at the School of Economics attended by about 40 delegates, including lead international and regional scholars on land and the agrarian question, land reform and gender relations etc.  CAS Doctoral students also participated and presented their research papers and theses proposals. Debates were intensely and necessarily provocative, urging new research questions on emerging inequalities and challenging old conceptual frameworks such as on the peasantry.
