Abstract:This special issue on land and conservation in postcolonial Africa is the result of a conference held at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, in September 2012. The alienation of land for conservation purposes, introduced under colonial rule and still taking place today in Africa, has fundamental impacts on the politics of land and land use, and is contested in contemporary nation-States.
