|Overview : |
The Land Reform Policy environment in South Africa has been under the most intense and structured scrutiny since the National Assembly adoption of the Motion on Land Expropriation without Compensation (EWC) in February 2018.In the same month, subsequent to the adoption of the Motion, the National Assembly established a Joint Parliamentary Constitutional Review Committee (CRC) to preside over public consultations on the necessity for an amendment to the constitution to allow for Expropriation of Land without Compensation. The CRC traveled to all provinces in soliciting public views on this matter. In these consultations the public and various interest groups had an opportunity to express their views, not only on the necessity to amend the Constitution, but also their lived experiences due to inequality of land access and ownership. In addition, others’ concern was related to the proposed direction of EWC.In addition to the above-mentioned processes, the State President established an Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) on Land Reform chaired by the Deputy President.
