Habitat International Coalition (HIC) and Housing and Land Rights Network (HLRN) have just published the English-language version of its compilation of papers and presentations of the Middle-East and North Africa (MENA) Land Forum between 2009 and 2013.

This volume compiles the contributions of participants in four rounds of the MENA Land Forum, 2009-2013. It embodies the diagnostic presentations and papers in English translation for the wider international public. The 36 contributions are organized according to 10 timely themes, exploring tenure rights; water scarcity; gender, the right to the city; corruption; indigenous peoples; conflict, occupation and war; globalization; land and revolution; and land in constitution and policy reform.

HIC-HLRN will soon publish The Land and Its People as an e-book, with additional contributions to form a “living document.”
