Realising women’s land rights: law, gender and farming in Tanzania

This book explores women’s claims to land in practice. The book is based on a year of ethnographic fieldwork, mainly in Arusha, northern Tanzania.

The book traces the progression of claims from their social origins, through legal processes of dispute resolution to judgment. »
