As post-apartheid South Africa began to take shape in the early 1990s, the country committed itself to a programme of land restitution to redress the brutal uprooting and relocation of people under apartheid. After 1994 this programme came to form one leg of a wider process of land reform. More than a decade later, land restitution and land reform remain highly charged issues in South Africa.
