Turkey withdraws from the Istanbul Convention: An interview with Eren Keskin.

Land Policy, Gender and Plural Legal Systems

The purpose of this project is to examine the impact of contemporary land policy on gender justice within the context of legal pluralism in post-colonial and post-conflict societies. To examine this relationship, we focus on four interrelated elements: (i) socio-legal and policy frameworks, (ii) engagement and adaptation of customary tenure, (iii) tenurial constraints and opportunities, and (iv) current policy positions and refrom debates (Bruce et al. 1994). Although we are interested in the tenure rights of vulnerable people in general, we focus specifically on the tenurial (in)security of women, structures and practices which shape women’s land right, and their experiences within pluralistic legal regimes. We will conduct this study by drawing from a qualitative fieldwork and comparative empirical analysis of Sierra Leone and Uganda.
