A Proposed Land Reform Programme For Zimbabwe.

This article was written in 1983 and describes three bills then proposed as the basis of a land reform programme. The paper argues first, that Zimbabwe's land problems in a large part arose out of the received legal order, both in terms of roman-dutch law, legislation and the law relating to land in what Zimbabwe now called communal areas. Secondly, it then discusses the Lancanster House Constitution and the serious but not insurmountable constraints on land reform the Constitution imposed. Finally, the paper discusses the three Acts that embodied the core of a possible land reform legislative programme.
