    Africa, Burundi

    With the end of the civil war in Burundi, the government began a transitional justice process to consolidate peace and deal with the legacies of past violations. Part of the transitional justice work in the country has been restitution of land and other property – a process that has provoked further violence and, to some extent, threatened national unity. Political elites have hijacked the land restitution process in a way that has shaped land conflicts on the ground and affected national politics.

Through analysis of the case of Timor-Leste (East Timor), a country marked by post-colonialism, post-authoritarianism, and post-conflict. The article shows how complex transitional justice regarding land grievances can be, and argues that a legalist perspective gives a limited view of these grievances, both for studying and finding solutions to them.

    Uganda, Philippines

    Land use planning is rarely a neutral process. Stakeholders often use it to control access to, ownership
    of and use of land. It is therefore essential to have a participatory tool (with constantly counterchecked processes) and flexible monitoring approaches to ensure sustainable land use and secure
    land tenure. The Practical Guide presents a unique approach to simultaneously addressing land
    use and tenure security challenges at the country level. The information and processes presented

    Customary land is increasingly recognised as an important governance issue in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
    The aim of this paper is to identify challenges associated with land administration, land governance and land

    customary land titles. From the 2019 National Land Summit, a need for a new approach that is theoretically
    better anchored in the current debate on bankable customary land leases has been identified. This paper builds

    Cameroon

    The Cameroonian government’s decision to reform the land legal framework is an opportunity to provide real protection for rural land tenure rights, in a context where major investments and projects are increasing tenure insecurity across the country. Responding to an invitation from the administration to help design this new framework, civil society stakeholders have issued multiple proposals over the years on the topics they think should be included in the new land law. The LandCam project has documented, analysed and consolidated these proposals.
