Land Claims & Audit
The JLD Institute has become renowned for its extensive research on land matters. Our work involves research on land claims and land audits as well as submissions and representations made to National Parliament with the view to influene the debate on land reform.
The Institute is on the panel of researchers appointed to conduct research nationally to assist the Commission on Restitution of Land Rights in its eorts to fast-track the resolution of land claims. The Institute has successfully investigated and researched land claims in KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, the North West, and the Western Cape.
The purpose is to objectively establish the extent of land owned by the state, municipalities, privately, mines. To establish how many land claims are currently in courts, and the timeline of land dispossession.
