This volume is the product of original research into the changing situations which rural African women are experiencing in relation to land rights. The contributors highlight key land rights issues and make recommendations for each country. In a particularly interesting innovation, the volume examines the case of Ethiopia where an explicit attempt has been made not only to make the research findings available beyond the academic community, but to deploy this information in a rolling programme of advocacy. The authors argue that various social forces are now weakening customary and religious institutions; and innovative approaches to advocacy are seeking to assert women's human rights in this changing context.
