Whose land is it anyway?

9 December 2015

This October the Africa Research Institute (ARI), based in Westminster, hosted the launch of Whose land is it anyway? The failure of land law reform in Kenya by Ambreena Manji, Professor of Land Law and Development at Cardiff Law School.

Professor Manji delivered a public lecture reflecting on her experience of advising on land law reform in Kenya while Director of the British Institute in Eastern Africa between 2010 and 2014. During this time, she served as a member of a consortium on land issues convened by Professor Yash Pal Ghai CBE FBA and the Katiba (Constitution) Institute.

Further information on Professor Manji’s lecture together with a video of the event can be found on the ARI website.

Professor Manji also wrote this month in the Kenyan newspaper, The Star. Her piece discussed comments on land grabbing made by Pope Francis on his recent trip to the country. Her article is available to read on The Star website.
