Women’s Land Tenure Framework for Analysis: Inheritance (R. Giovarelli & E. Scalise)

This framework is intended to help you assess the current situation for women’s land rights in a specific country, state, or community by focusing on a single question: Can women inherit land? It provides guidance for thinking through both formal legal rights and customary rights to inherit to identify any gaps between law and practice. In order to analyze the situation, it is important to think about law and custom separately, but it is also important to identify when law and custom may overlap.
