    Kenya

    Women’s rights to land remain a contested issue in Kenya despite the acceptance of the principle of equality of the genders in law. The 2010 Constitution of Kenya clearly provides for the principles of equality and non-discrimination at Article 27. Moreover, in the land policy principles and the national values and principles of governance, gender equality is included. Despite these clear provisions however, gender inequality in land relations persists. The patriarchal social ordering that privileges men in land holding has been a greater barrier to women’s land rights.

    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.

    Pakistán, Asia meridional

    Women’s land ownership and control have important connections with their empowerment in Pakistan’s agricultural context. However, the link between these has largely remained unexplored; and there has been only a few research to determine how many women own or control land in Pakistan. The Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) carried out a multiple pronged research in 2007-09 to fill this knowledge gap and to examine the reason behind women’s land ownership and empowerment.

    Rwanda

    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
