Land Grabbing

Land grabbing cases are retrieved mainly from limited sources—the land research of LIOH (2015 & 2020), land right violations documentation activities of LIOH during 2019~2020 (together with the reports of partner organizations) and reliable media news (media tracking activity after 2020). Meaning that the cases shown here is just a tiny portion of actual land grabbing prevalent across the country.
