  • 13 November 2015

On Tuesday 10th November, Mokoro held a seminar on ‘New Research on Women’s Land Rights’. This seminar was a forum to discuss the findings of our speakers’ recent extended fieldwork, about the current status of women’s land rights in the places they have been studying. Helen Dancer talked about her fieldwork in Tanzania, researching women’s claims to land in the land tribunals of Arusha. Kristina Lanz spoke about her recent fieldwork in the Volta region of Ghana, looking at the impacts of large-scale land acquisitions on households. The seminar aimed to identify what their research could contribute to current debates on women’s land rights and to critical issues for action and lobbying in the context of Beijing+20 and the SDGs.
