Oxfam, ActionAid, and ACORD with support from others are convening the African Women’s Land Rights Conference, to be held from 30th May to 2nd June 2011 in Nairobi, Kenya.

The conference will bring together women’s and land rights activists and organisations including farmer associations, pastoralist groups, women survivor groups, lawyers, parliamentarians and academics that are committed to strengthening women’s rights in Africa.

The purpose of the event is to re-energize the struggle for women’s land rights and access to justice and reparation as fundamental human rights and the basis for women’s empowerment, and improved food security and social justice in Africa. Amongst other specific issues the conference will address access to justice and reparations related to conflicts, sexual gender based violence (SGBV) and land.
