In this article, a framework is developed to empirically analyse conflicts over land in the context of global crises. This framework aims to overcome the trap of a dichotomous and hierarchical construction of ‘local’ conflicts over land resulting from ‘global’ crises. Building on an action-oriented concept of conflict and a dialectical understanding of structure–agency relations informed by historical materialism, an analytical framework is suggested comprising four dimensions: structures, institutions, agency, and the narratives and meaning making of actors.
