The 2-day conference is aimed at drawing scholars and policy makers together who have been paying particular attention to gender dynamics in land governance processes. We are at an important juncture where many countries are experimenting with legislative change in land governance. It is imperative for the aims of social justice, equity, and poverty alleviation that gender perspectives inform these reforms.
The conference will include plenary panels of guest speakers from across academia and public policy, and a series of academic papers.
