The emergence of transnational agrarian movements in the past two decades has been associated with their growing engagement with the law. Agrarian movements’ legal mobilizations are both innovative and extremely varied, ranging from civil disobedience to the creation of new human rights in global fora, and from litigation in national courts to international people’s tribunals. We explore how these movements tap the potential and navigate the pitfalls of using the law at different scales to achieve social change, and make the case for a politically engaged ethnography.
