Changing Customary Land Tenure System in Tivland: Understanding the Drivers of Change

V Venatus Kakwagh

Abstract


This study aims at highlighting the factors driving change in the Tiv customary land tenure system. The study observes that although all societies have rules that regulate how land is owned, inherited and transferred, these rules continually undergo changes due to a myriad of factors. In Tivland, the study has identified the factors driving change in the customary land tenure system as demographic change, conflict and migration, socio-cultural factors and the commercialization of agriculture. Keywords: Custom; Land tenure; Tivland; drivers of change Résumé: Cette étude vise à mettre en évidence les facteurs de changement dans le système foncier coutumier au Tivland .
