This book constitutes volume one of a two volume examination of development community land issues in Southern Africa. In this volume, Ben Chigara undertakes a holistic inter-disciplinary evaluation of the legitimacy of colonial and emergent post-colonial rule property rights in affected States of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). It particularly focuses on intensifying litigation in national courts, the SADC Tribunal, and more recently the Washington based International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) regarding counter claims to title to property. The book examines cultural, economic and political drivers at the core of SADC land issues, focusing on their significance and potential to contribute to the discovery of a new, sustainable land relations policy that guarantees social justice in the distribution of all the advantages and disadvantages relating to the allocation and use of land. Chigara shows that persistent systematic administrative failures by pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial authorities have made for a very complex challenge that requires Solomonic tools that neither the Courts alone, nor human rights centric morality alone could resolutely attend. The book recommends a sophisticated systematic new approach to SADC land issues, which is developed in volume two, Re-conceiving Property Rights in the New Millennium. This book will be of great interest to students and researchers of Property and Conveyancing Law, Human Rights Law and Land Law.

This book constitutes volume two of a two volume examination of development community land issues in Southern Africa. Following from volume one Southern African Development Community Land Issues, this book considers the possibility of a new, sustainable land relations policy for Southern African Development Community States (SADC) that are currently mired up in land disputes that have become subject of domestic, regional and international tribunals. Chigara demonstrates that land relations in the SADC have always been, and will perhaps remain, a matter for constitutional regulation. Because constitutional laws are distinctive from other laws only by constitutional design, legal contests appear to be the least likely means for settlement in the sub-region. Only human rights inspired policies, that respond to the call for social justice by acknowledging both the current and the underlying contexts to the disputes, hold the most potential to resolve these disputes. The book recommends efficient pedagogical counter-apartheid-rule psychological distortions regarding the significance of human dignity (PECAPDISH) as a pre-requisite and corollary to the dismantling of the salient physical legacy of apartheid-rule in affected SADC States. The book shows that PECAPDISH’s potential and benefits would be enormous. The book will be of interest to students and researchers of Property and Conveyancing Law, Human Rights Law, and Land Law.

Mit Blick auf aktuelle Entwicklungen und die neue Verfassung in Simbabwe, beschäftigt sich der Band mit den Chancen und Herausforderungen, mit denen das Land konfrontiert ist. Die Beiträge resultieren aus der im März 2015 in Harare abgehaltenen Konferenz "Überlegungen zum Fortschritt bei der Umsetzung der neuen Verfassung Simbabwes: Nationale, regionale und globale Perspektiven". Die Autoren, darunter politische Entscheidungsträger, Vertreter der Justiz, sowie simbabwische und internationale Verfassungsrechtsexperten reflektieren u. a. über die Herausforderung der verfassungsrechtlichen Ausrichtung, die Rolle der Zivilgesellschaft und der Sicherheitsdienste in einer konstitutionellen Demokratie und die Rolle von Institutionen und unabhängigen Kommissionen bei Etablierung und Erhalt von demokratischen Werten und Rechtsstaatlichkeit. Damit soll ein offener intellektueller und rechtlicher Dialog über die neue Verfassung gefördert und dessen Bedeutung für die Menschen in Simbabwe aufgezeigt werden.

In Give a Man a Fish James Ferguson examines the rise of social welfare programs in southern Africa, in which states make cash payments to their low income citizens. More than thirty percent of South Africa's population receive such payments, even as pundits elsewhere proclaim the neoliberal death of the welfare state. These programs' successes at reducing poverty under conditions of mass unemployment, Ferguson argues, provide an opportunity for rethinking contemporary capitalism and for developing new forms of political mobilization. Interested in an emerging "politics of distribution," Ferguson shows how new demands for direct income payments (including so-called "basic income") require us to reexamine the relation between production and distribution, and to ask new questions about markets, livelihoods, labor, and the future of progressive politics.

From a historical, post-apartheid perspective, this book argues that 'apartheid destabilisation' in the Southern African sub-region, resulted in a particular form of regionalisation which favoured state security over human security, stressed solidarity, and regarded external intervention as inimical to its own interests. It argues that this stance was fundamentally anti-democratic, and that its legacy haunts the organs, SADC and the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security as the premier vehicles for security cooperation in the region. The book argues that a further legacy of apartheid destabilisation was to foster national sovereignties at the expense of a collective regional identity; the present challenge being for SADC to decide how best to move to considerations of regional security. It then addresses issues such as the need to develop a common military doctrine, command, training, and control. The book is divided into three parts. The first provides historical background to the current developments, outlining the challenges facing the region's policymakers and citizens. The second part focuses on the nuts and bolts of defence cooperation among the SADC states. The final part addresses the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security, its institutional problems, and outlines possible mechanisms for correcting them. The contributors are mostly connected with the Africa Institute of South Africa and the University of Pretoria.

The dismantling of the apartheid regime in South Africa caused massive transformation in both geographical and economic terms, not only in this country but also in the region as a whole. As the post-apartheid government enters its second term, this captivating volume assesses its progress in unravelling the geography of apartheid, both in South Africa itself and in its relationships with other countries in Southern Africa and Africa. It also considers the ways in which South Africa, now that it is no longer a pariah state, has begun to position itself within the current global economy. Examining South Africa’s land and agriculture, mining and minerals, manufacturing, tourism, corporate finance, the labour market and transport, the volume discusses the challenges of balancing growth and redistribution, the extent and nature of progress, change and relationships within the regional and global economy. A compelling investigation into the economics of South Africa's neighbouring states in relation to their natural resources, colonialism and inter-relationships with themselves and with South Africa leads to a focus on the region as a whole and its relations with the global economy.
