Lookup NU author(s): Dr Sue Farran



This is the authors' accepted manuscript of a book chapter that has been published in its final definitive form by Routledge, 2020.

Customary law presents many challenges in the context of legal pluralism and comparative legal studies, not least because it has both traditional and contemporary dimensions, especially in rapidly changing contexts. This chapter, in a collection which celebrates the work of comparatist Esin Orucu, considers the topic of customary land tenure in South Africa and in the Pacific, two regions which are geographically distant but share a number of experiences and challenges.
