Democracy Compromised
Chiefs and the politics of land in South Africa
Lungisile Ntsebeza
Democracy Compromised puts the spotlight on traditional authorities and addresses two main issues: first, how despite their role in the apartheid state, traditional authorities not only survived, but have won unprecedented powers of rural governance in South Africa’s democracy, and second, how they derive their authority. In this original and compelling study, Lungisile Ntsebeza carefully details the fascinating history of the chieftaincy in the Xhalanga area of the Eastern Cape. He shows how traditional authorities have been dependent on the support of the state since the advent of colonialism and how deeply traditional structures have been contested. Light is shed on the unexpected renaissance of these authorities under ANC rule and the role of traditional leaders in the process of land allocation is clearly explained.

Going for Broke
Going for Broke
The fate of farmworkers in arid South Africa
Doreen Atkinson

South African agriculture has always been ideologically contested, because of its relationship with controversial land ownership issues. This book takes the question of farm workers’ fortunes beyond the land debate, to consider their current and future livelihoods. The book argues that the question of farm workers needs to be understood as part of a broader spectrum of economic and social questions. Where should farm workers live? Should rural-urban migration be encouraged? What kind of job prospects can be fostered? How can their participation in the rural and peri-urban economy be promoted?  Do farm workers need land, or jobs, or municipal services? Who should provide support to this neglected segment of society?

The Impact of HIV/AIDS on Land Rights
Case studies from Kenya
Michael Aliber, Cherryl Walker, Mumbi Machera, Paul Kamau, Charles Omondi, Karuti Kanyinga
Based on three village case studies from different parts of Kenya, this co-authored study explores the relationship between HIV/AIDS and land rights focusing on women as a socially vulnerable group. The study compares affected with non-affected households and HIV/AIDS emerges as a significant but not primary cause of tenure insecurity.

Indigenous Knowledge on the South African Landscape
Indigenous Knowledge on the South African Landscape
Potentials for agricultural development
Tim Hart, Ineke Vorster
Aligned to the principle that development needs to start with what people know and build on their knowledge and experiences, the authors of this paper provide some examples of how important indigenous or local knowledge is to its users, different ways in which they use this knowledge, and the potential that indigenous knowledge has in some areas of agricultural development.

Land Claims & National Parks
Land Claims & National Parks
The Makuleke experience
Bertus de Villiers
The restoration of land rights is a key factor in transforming post-apartheid South Africa. The Makuleke claim against the northern part of the Kruger National Park illustrates the complexities and competing interests involved in restoring land rights. The co-operative resolution of the claim offers a blueprint for other such disputes.

Dynamics and determinants

Post-Apartheid Patterns of Internal Migration in South Africa
Post-Apartheid Patterns of Internal Migration in South Africa
Pieter Kok, Michael O'Donovan, Oumar Bouare, Johan van Zyl
Popular belief is that urbanisation has increased substantially in the new South Africa, when, in fact, patterns of internal migration have remained static since the late 1970s. Internal migration patterns have been under-researched since the easing of restrictions in 1990. This study fills the gap drawing on census and other secondary data.

The Struggle over Land in Africa
The Struggle over Land in Africa
Conflicts, Politics & Change
Ward Anseeuw , Chris Alden (eds)

Land issues and conflicts occur all over, all the time on the African continent and continue to mushroom on a continuous basis. Although many of these issues are not new, they do continue to change and are extremely complex and embedded, which may lead to the inability to deal with them and to questioning the legitimacy of the forms of intervention and prevention of conflicts. The way in which these issues are dealt with often does not take into consideration their major - and thus potentially recurring - causes. The Struggle over Land in Africa: Conflicts, Politics and Change is a compelling book which analyses the role of land as a place and source of conflict, especially with regard to policy development, crisis management and post-war/post-conflict reconstruction. The authors’ main aim is to gain insight into the nature of policy-making concerning land and to delve into the underlying causes of these land issues, not only at national level but also in terms of broader Africa. The book covers land issues in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, northern Cameroon, Namibia, Mozambique, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Some of the themes explored in this powerful volume include: Ethnic and indigenous land conflicts, Traditionalism versus modernity, renewed land interests, land use and conflict, state building, politics and land (for example Agricultural land reform); land policy development, planning, inclusiveness/non-inclusiveness; regional scopes of land conflicts and changing norms.

Views on Migration in Sub-Saharan Africa
Views on Migration in Sub-Saharan Africa
Proceedings of an African Migration Alliance Workshop
Catherine Cross, Derik Gelderblom, Niel Roux, Jonathan Mafukidze (eds)
Migration by the poor is a scorching issue in the world today – both inside their own countries and on the international scene, the world’s poor are voting with their feet to escape poverty and make their bid for new lives in new places.  Public anxiety is reaching fever pitch in the developed world, xenophobia is spreading, and governments everywhere are struggling to mobilize policies that will enable them to respond humanely and effectively to a rising human tide.  How does Africa stand on migration?
