Leiden University Law School is taking part in the Just Future Programme, a 5-year consortium of various partners from the Global North and South, supported by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which aims at promoting more inclusive, constructive and legitimate power relations for justice seekers in Afghanistan, Burundi, DRC, South Sudan, Mali, and Niger.
During the first two years of the programme Prof. Janine Ubink and Dr. Bernardo Almeida will focus on effective land justice pathways for the protection of people’s land rights and prevention of conflict. In collaboration with local organizations, they will document and analyse specific practical land justice interventions in South Sudan and Afghanistan. Besides its impact at local level, this research also aims to highlight the link between land and conflict as a driver of injustice and conflict relevant to SDG16+.
