Understanding, preventing and solving land conflicts
This guide has been written for all those practitioners who are confronted with land conflicts in the course of their work or are in a position to prevent them and/or include land governance as one pillar in post-conflict policies. It aims to broaden the understanding of the complexity of causes that lead to land conflicts in order to provide for better-targeted ways of addressing such conflicts. It also provides a number of tools with which to analyse land disputes. Successful analysis is seen as a vital step towards their eventual settlement. In addition, this guidebook discusses a wide variety of options and tools for settling ongoing land conflicts and for preventing new ones. The guide also includes a chapter on the role of land in (violent) conflict and peacebuilding and it presents a broad range of good practices from a project level.
