Realising Justice? Negotiating land reform in Southern Africa- Second Year Workshop, Edinburgh, June 16, 2016

This is the second in a series of workshops, research and training modules, funded by the British Academy’s International Partnership and Mobility Scheme to be conducted in Botswana, Edinburgh, Malawi and Zimbabwe addressing the critical issue of access to land and land reform in Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries. The project recognizes the critical importance of land and its centrality in promoting wellbeing not only in national but also in local contexts. Scholars from Malawi, Edinburgh, Botswana and Zimbabwe are examining the impact of current land tenure systems and effects of land reform polices on livelihoods. The workshops seek to engage scholars from Africa and elsewhere to discuss the importance of land policies in the context of debates about development and fair distribution of resources. For the pressure on land use and access to land is one of the most pressing of global challenges to peace, sustainability and justice in the twenty-first century.
