Urban Land and the Genesis of Violence

The question of land has been a burning issue in the history of South Africa. Under colonialism and apartheid, various laws and policies were used to dispossess and force black people from their ancestral land. Since the democratic transition in 1994, there have been questions whether land reform or restitution processes have worked. This research report seeks to add to the many voices in this conversation from the perspective of competition over urban land and the violence that often ensues as a result.
