In post-genocide Rwanda, uncompensated expropriation and a nationwide settlement policy may have reduced short-term problems over secondary occupation of property, but have created lingering grievances. International agencies have underplayed the role of state agency in their analysis of these problems.

Other conflicts, including those in Darfur and the Middle East, have involved control of scarce resources such as fertile land and water.
