Highlighting the urgent problem of land disputes in Africa, this collection of essays also draws attention to the complex root causes of these conflicts and the challenges they present for the governance of both states and markets. Written by authors from academic, diplomatic, and political backgrounds, the book is an essential reference on the debate about land issues in Africa. The study provides a continental perspective in chapters that describe internal crises in Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, northern Cameroon, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.
