Extrait de la présentation
"This conference aims at promoting scientific exchanges involving researchers and stakeholders dealing with land issues. Participants will be invited to share their work and experiences in order to assess land strategies and policies within a comparative framework. This conference was initiated by Ugandan and French researchers from the Institute of Research for Development (IRD, France) and the University of Makerere (Kampala, Uganda). Many local and international researchers in East Africa have documented
land-related issues and wider scientific exchanges are expected to stem from this meeting. [...]
This conference will give us the opportunity to present research, to question different categories of social
and economic actors and representations related to land. It will also be policy oriented, highlighting the
specific role of the State in the control and formalisation of access to land and associated resources.
Dealing with different countries in East Africa and the Indian Ocean (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia,
Burundi, Rwanda, Madagascar, etc.), a comparative perspective will enhance exchanges between
researchers and open the discussion to other stakeholders and actors of the current changes.
The conference will explore the following themes :
Panel 1 : The digitalization of land registries and legal land privatisation
Panel 2 : Investments and pressure on land
Panel 3 : Patrimonial strategies to secure access to land (two sessions)
Panel 4 : Public Policies"
