Land tenure reform in Namaqualand: elite capture and the new commons of Leliefontein.

by Lebert, Thomas Siegfried

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis provides a detailed examination of the development and implementation of a commonage management system on newly acquired municipal commonage in the Leliefontien communal area of Namaqualand, South Africa. This commonage has been acquired ostensibly for use by all of the Leliefontien's residents. A Commonage Committee made up of community members and state representatives manages this land on behalf of the municipality.
