Training Manual - Working on Legitimacy in Land Governance | Land Portal | Securing Land Rights Through Open Data

Resource Language: 

How state and customary authorities deal with land issues has important consequences for how they are viewed by citizens. This may be particularly the case in conflict-affected settings, where displacement and return cause tenure insecurity and land disputes, and where the legitimacy of state and non-state institutions is contested. ZOA and Radboud University have developed a training manual around legitimacy and land, based on research conducted by Radboud researchers in Uganda.

The training programme presented here helps development practitioners in the land sector to become more sensitive to questions of legitimacy, and to better understand how their interventions in the land sector impact local dynamics of legitimation.
