Abstract:This volume brings together different studies on Africa's land questions and focusses on the issues of rural/urban development, citizenship, land tenure, social movements, women's rights, youths, and indigenous people. An overarching concern is the extent to which land rights are being commodified through the conversion of land held under customary tenure systems into the private market system. Most research is based on case studies in West Africa. Contributions: Introduction. Africa's diverse and changing land questions (S. Moyo, D. Tsikata & Y.
