Land tenure and rural livelihoods in southern Africa

Briefing/policy papers

This paper reviews land tenure reform on communal land against the background of the repossession of private land occupied by white settlers. The purpose and scope of the proposed tenure reform in the former homelands of South Africa are described, as well as the attempts by South Africa’s neighbours to resolve tenure problems in the Communal Areas.
