Land in Africa: Market Asset, or Secure Livelihood? Church House, Westminster, London November 8-9 2004 Securing the commons in an era of privatisation: Policy and legislative challenges
This document is the report of a workshop held in Nakuru, Kenya, from the 25th to the 28th of October 2004. The workshop was hosted by Reconcile, a Kenyan NGO based in the same town. It brought together some 45 participants, mainly from East Africa and the Horn, but also from West and Southern Africa and from Europe. The workshop took place within the context of a networking programme funded by the European Commission ("Co-Govern"). The programme aims to promote informed policy debate about the management of the commons in Europe and Africa, and to facilitate the sharing of ideas and experience among practitioners working on the same issue. The intellectual contributions presented here are those of the workshop participants. For those contributions coming from papers presented at the workshop, this is explicitly acknowledged in brackets.
