Displacement and Housing, Land and Property Disputes in PuntlandNRC: This study was commissioned by NRC to develop a typology of land disputes impacting upon IDPs in Puntland and to examine the different mechanisms available to resolve these disputes.
The study found that although a wide range of local dispute resolution avenues existed – namely municipal authorities, customary courts, sharia law, statutory courts and NGO initiated collaborative dispute resolution services – these were largely unable to prevent evictions.
The study suggests that eviction prevention may be more effective than dispute resolution in safeguarding IDP land tenure.

The report is available here.
