Women, Land and Justice in Tanzania

Helen Dancer (1994, Politics, Philosophy & Economics)

Women, Land and Justice in Tanzania (James Currey, 2015).

Drawing on her ethnographic research in Tanzania's Arusha region, Helen Dancer's recent book explores how the country's land law reforms have affected women's legal claims to land. Centring on cases involving women litigants, it follows the progression of women's claims to land - from social origins through processes of dispute resolution to judgment.
