National Land Workshop

Coming together at a National Land Workshop on 3-4 October 2013, hosted by the Centre for Law and Society, the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies, and Tshintsha Amakhaya, civil society participants thrashed out a strategy to respond to several bills and policies that government is seeking to finalise ahead of the 2014 election. Proper consultation had not been pursued in any of the new bills and the turnaround time for submissions on the relevant Bills was extremely short. Community organisations from across South Africa expressed dismay and frustration at the extent to which the government's new land policies and Bills seem to affect their rights in terms of the land reform process and access to land.
