Land restitution in South Africa, 1991-94

Land Use Policy 12(4): 267-279

Land restitution in South Africa, 1991-94

Recent political developments in South Africa have resulted in a re-evaluation of the position of the individuals and communities who were forcibly removed from their land under apartheid. The first moves at restoring land to the dispossessed took place between 1991 and 1994 in a pragmatic manner. A number of significant acts of restitution were effected with the return of several African rural communities to the land from which they had been forcibly removed.
