A Role for Common Property Institutions in Land Redistribution Programmes in South Africa

Ben Cousins

Report/paper, 18 pages

The focus of this paper is on the design and development of common property institutions (CPIs) for the management of natural resources, particularly communal grazing land, within land redistribution programmes in South Africa. It first considers the nature of common property regimes, the rationales for supporting them and their vulnerability as institutions. This reveals critical issues related to the design and development of these institutions, which the remainder of the paper discusses.
