This book considers issues surrounding land ownership and land reform in the countries which comprise the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). The contributions to the book focus particularly on the possible impact of land issues on the sub-region's development and human security potential in light of the UN Millennium Development Goals and the development of international human rights law and regional customary international law.
The book situates SADC land issues in their local, regional and international context at the start of the twenty-first century exploring them from an inter-disciplinary perspective. The book features contributions from an impressive array of experts including Patricia Kameri-Mbote, Eldred Masunungure and Catherine Odimba Kombe. The book addresses SADC land issues from a socio-legal historical perspective, evaluating their impact on the emerging political, economic, and social character of the sub-region. The book concludes that the current plans for land reform are unsustainable for all stakeholders in light of the local and global aspirations that SADC governments have previously committed themselves to, and so the book goes on to put forward a new, sustainable land relations policy which could be amenable to all stakeholders in the region.
