    ...This paper examines the value and limitations of HLP restitution in contexts of customary land tenure
    and legal pluralism and examines the role that customary justice can play as part of a transitional
    justice process. It argues that actors involved with restitution and broader efforts to reinstate justice,
    the rule of law, and democracy in post-conflict and transitional contexts should engage, albeit under
    certain conditions, with nonstate justice mechanisms. For the overwhelming majority of populations

The Global Property Rights Index, or PRIndex, seeks to address this gap.

    The new political dispensation in South Africa was the result of a political compromise, which depended on a crucial agreement to leave many of the existing power and wealth relationships intact.
