Based on a project recently completed with the World Bank, but also on his extensive career, Dr. Bruce is going to share his knowledge about avoidance and mitigation of violent conflict related to land.

Dr. John W. Bruce has worked on land policy and law in developing countries for almost fifty years, primarily in Africa and Asia. He began his work on land tenure in the late 1960s as a Peace Corps legal advisor to the Ministry of Land Reform in Ethiopia and later conducted research and teaching in both Ethiopia and Sudan. In 1980 he joined the staff of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Land Tenure Center, where he served first as African Program Coordinator, and then as Director. In 1996, he joined the World Bank as Senior Counsel (Land Law) and Land Tenure Specialist. Dr. Bruce retired from the World Bank in 2006 and now heads a consulting firm, Land and Development Solutions International, based in Virginia, United States. He has published extensively on land policy and law.
