    Land acquisitions, either driven by foreign investments or domestic investment needs have continued to polarize opinions. When this research was proposed, it was premised on arguments by scholars Ruth Meinzen-Dick and Helen Markelova, who had analysed agricultural land deals, and argued that there were potentially two schools of thought about foreign acquisitions over agricultural land.

    Hoje, no quadro dos projectos de exploração dos recursos minerais e grandes projectos de construção de infra estruturas, ocorrem, ou há potencialidade de ocorrência, conflitos que opõem particulares entre si (titular de um direito sobre a terra e um investidor) ou particular e a Administração Pública.
    Por isso, considera-se que seria importante discutir os mecanismos de extinção de direitos sobre a terra e os meios de defesa do direito de uso e aproveitamento da terra (DUAT) como forma de procurar demonstrar a relação entre a Lei e a prática.

    Organizational Approaches for Women's Property Rights

    Policy Papers & Briefs
    January, 2007
    Global

    Women in many countries are far less likely than men to own property and assets - key tools to gaining economic security and earning higher incomes. Though laws to protect women's property rights exist in most countries, gender and cultural constraints can prevent women from owning or inheriting property. In this series, the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) suggests practical steps to promote, protect and fulfill women's property rights.

    Africa, Uganda

    The 1995 Constitution of the Republic of Uganda is one of the most gender sensitive constitutions in the world, with clear provisions for promoting and protecting the rights of women. This is also the case in relation to women’s land rights – the Constitution clearly vests land in the people of Uganda, including the rights of women to own and inherit land. Other land laws, including the Land Act, recognize and uphold women’s rights to land as individuals, and as part of a family or community.

    'Lay of the land: Improving land governance to stop land grabs' argues that land grabbing can deprive rural women and communities of their livelihoods and land, increasing their food insecurity

    Global

    [adapted from ActionAid] October, 2012- The report states that the importance of land to rural women goes beyond growing food. Having secure access to, and independent control over, land can mean the difference between, on the one hand, enjoying rights such as education and freedom from violence or, on the other, continual subjugation in society. ActionAid view security of land tenure for impoverished rural communities as a fundamental component of dignified, sustainable development and a crucial step towards reducing poverty and reducing inequality.
