Property Rights and Social and Economic Rights to Land, Forests and Natural Resources

Namita Wahi

Watch the panel discussion (above) on the complexities of property and social and economic rights to land, forests and natural resources in India and South Africa–both developing countries that have emerged from a colonial past.

The discussion traced the chequered trajectory of the individual right to property as well as focused on a forest rights perspective on property in India. It juxtaposed these with South Asian perspectives on land and property rights to unpack the complexities inherent in the rights discourse on land and property in both countries.
