Women’S Land Rights: Customary Rules And Formal Laws In The Pastoral Areas Of Ethiopia – Complementary Or In Conflict?

Diciembre, 2021

Land in Ethiopia is held by the state and the people; while landholders guaranteed a lifetime ‘holding’ right (any right except sell and mortgage per se). Women have equal rights to men in the formal legal system, despite, in pastoral areas, women’s land rights are highly influenced by religious and customary systems: rights are meaningless unless they are socially recognized and effectively enforced. Studies on women’s land rights comparing between formal and customary land laws are rare.

The politics of legal pluralism in the shaping of spatial power in Myanmar’s land governance

Diciembre, 2020

Following the National League for Democracy’s landslide victory in the 2015 national election, Myanmar embarked on a series of legal and political transitions. This paper highlights parallel processes alongside such transitions. Linking land governance with the ongoing peace processes, and taking Karen state as a case study, it brings to light how both processes are in fact closely interlinked. Building on legal pluralism research, we argue that in the context of ethnic states, farmers’ strategies to strengthen their land rights resemble the very notion of state transformation.

Registration of private interests in land in a community lands policy setting: An exploratory study in Meru district, Tanzania

Peer-reviewed publication
Noviembre, 2020

Current Tanzanian land law offers registration of private interests in land in the form of Certificates of Customary Rights of Occupancy (CCROs) within a broader community lands approach. We conducted qualitative research on the issuance of CCROs along a mountain slope transect in Meru district in northeast Tanzania. This area features intensified smallholder agriculture that evolutionary theory suggests is well adapted for registration of private interests in land.

Land tenure security for women: A conceptual framework

Peer-reviewed publication
Noviembre, 2020

While strengthening women’s land rights is increasingly on national and international agendas, there is little consensus on how to understand women’s tenure security. Analyses of women’s land rights often use very different definitions of land rights, from formal ownership to women’s management of plots allocated to them by their husbands. This paper identifies aspects of women’s tenure that should be included in indicators. It then provides a conceptual framework to identify the various dimensions of women’s land tenure security and the myriad factors that may influence it.

Peer-reviewed publication
Abril, 2019
Côte d'Ivoire

En Côte d’Ivoire comme dans d’autres pays africain, le pluralisme juridique est l’origine d’une crise de la légalité et de crispations sociales. L’accès à la terre est emblématique des difficultés et des différends qui peuvent naître de la coexistence, issue de la colonisation, d’une pluralité de modes de normativité étatique et coutumier en jeu sur un même territoire.
