This volume focuses on the impact on womens' land rights from the contemporary drive towards the formulation and implementation of land tenure reforms which aim primarily at the private registration of land. It is all solidly grounded in the findings from seven case studies, all based on in depth qualitative research from various regions of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.
'This is an exciting new collection from an impressive generation of young scholars. Their focus on Eastern Africa makes great sense geographically, historically and thematically for the countries discussed in this volume have all undergone similar land reform and privatization processes in recent years.' - Robin Palmer in the Foreword
