Land, reparations and transitional justice are linked in South Sudan. The African Union’s 2014 inquiry saw land grabbing as among the accumulated grievances and called for land reform as part of transitional justice processes. Yet the 2018 peace agreement doesn’t address land in its transitional justice framework. This report discusses citizen’s views on the issue and recommends that land be addressed as part of the post-war reconstruction of South Sudan.
