Land Registration in Ethiopia: Early Impacts on Women Summary Report (Eng - 2008)
This publication belongs to a series of research reports examining the changing landscape of land tenure security in developing countries. The intent is to provide up-to-date information to land professionals and policy makers working in the land sector and to raise awareness on what is being done at the country level.
This study focuses on how Ethiopian land law has been implemented in practice, in particular, it examines how the position of women in cases of divorce or death of their husbands, may have changed and whether the new laws have impacts on the empowerment of women. Gender impacts are also captured by comparing the situation of female-headed households with other households.
