Chapter Summary

This chapter enumerates the lessons learned from the process, which are undoubtedly relevant to tackling property rights challenges in future crises, post conflict, transitional and development contexts. Comprehensive proposals to deal with property rights issues should be explicitly provided for in peace settlements and agreements. Property rights challenges are common in all post-conflict settings and they should therefore become a key component of post-conflict resolution and peace-building. Restitution mechanisms must be easily accessible, user-friendly and fully subsidised so that claimants do not incur legal fees, regardless of whether their claim is granted or dismissed. An essential component of an effective property dispute resolution programme is that it be equipped with implementation intervention powers and strategies to include authority to deal with illegal occupation of property and to fully enforce and ensure compliance with legally binding decisions.
