    Etiopía

    Land in Ethiopia is held by the state, who acts as a custodian for the Ethiopian people. Even though it is the state which controls land ownership, farmers and pastoralists are guaranteed a lifetime ‘holding’ right that provides rights to use the land, rent it out, donate, inherit and sharecrop it. Everything except sell and mortgage it. On paper and under existing formal laws, women have equal rights to men as far as use and control of and access to land is concerned.

    Rwanda

    In Rwanda, two factors make land a highly important and contested issue. First,
    Rwanda has the highest person-to-land ratio in Africa. This creates tremendous
    pressure on land in a country where most of the population lives in rural areas, and
    where agriculture remains the central economic activity. Second, Rwanda is recovering
    from massive population shifts caused by decades of ethnic strife and the 1994 civil war
    and genocide, which resulted in displaced populations and overlapping land claims.

    This brief discusses a pilot intervention in Rwanda led by the Belgian
    NGO, RCN Justice & Démocratie, with support from the International
    Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the Belgian Government. A
    more detailed and complete discussion of the pilot is given in Lankhorst
    and Veldman (2011a). The pilot aimed to transform the customary
    resolution of disputes involving women’s land claims concerning
    inheritance or marital relations. The intervention examined whether
    and to what extent it was possible to increase the scope for acceptance

    As Parliamentary gender quotas have become increasingly popular, so too
    has the debate surrounding their effectiveness in enhancing women’s
    representation and gender equality in governments around the world. Women offer
    unique and important perspectives to the political process, and thus their increased
    political representation and empowerment can advance the very process of
    development. In 2003, the Rwandan government Constitutionally enacted a gender

    Rural women’s livelihoods in Africa are dependent on their rights and entitlement to land as well as security of tenure. Equally important is how land laws and land governance systems shape and reshape women’s access to land and tenure security. As such, this paper focuses on women’s access to land and tenure security after the adoption of a new Constitution in 2013 and Statutory Instrument 53 of 2014 in Zimbabwe. Whereas both legal instruments are progressive and guarantee women’s rights to property, their realization is shrouded in complexities and contradictions.
