Asia Pacific Bulletin: Customary Land Rights and Pacific Islands Security & Stability – Iati Iati

“Over the past several decades, efforts to achieve greater development through a neo‐liberal, market‐based agenda have led to the intensification of programs to reform customary land tenure in the Pacific. There are two approaches to achieving this: the abolition model, and the adaptation model. The abolition model views customary land tenure as a barrier to entrepreneurship and private sector investment that needs to be abolished.”
