The future of land: commercial pressures and the case for systemic law reform to secure rural land rights
Book chapter, 12 pages
This think piece – part of a collection of essays prepared for the African Development Bank – reflects on changing commercial pressures on land in low and middle-income countries; the role of law in shaping the ways those pressures manifest themselves; the limits of business standards in driving systemic change; and the case for comprehensive law reform to secure rural land rights.
