Property Rights and the Demands of Transformation

Winter 2011

Researching Law, Vol. 22, No. 1

In 1994 South Africa held its first free democratic elections, with victory going to the African National Congress, the party that had struggled for decades for African liberation from the Apartheid system. Under the leadership of Nelson Mandela, the new government faced many pressing social and political issues stemming from the Apartheid past, among them the inequitable distribution of land among the nation’s population. This edition of Researching Law addresses this historical moment of reform in South Africa in a new article by ABF’s Bernadette Atuahene, titled “Property Rights and the Demands of Transformation.”
