Heinz Klug (University of Wisconsin Law School) has posted Property's Role in the Fundamental Political Structure of Nations: The Southern African Experience (6 Brigham-Kanner Prop. Rts. Conf. J. 145 (2017)) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
In order to explore the relationship between property and the structure of the State, this essay will first address the connection between land tenure, sovereignty, and legitimacy. This will be followed by a brief outline of the general history of land reform before focusing more directly on the relationship between land and the State in southern Africa. Finally, the essay will look at tenure diversity as a basis for restructuring the relationship between democratic legitimacy and the post-colonial State in southern Africa.
