Spatial Inequality in Times of Urban Transition: Complex Land Markets in Somaliland and Uganda
Complex land markets offer a framework within which there are processes and aspects of transactions that can simultaneously promote spatial justice and injustice. That is, the same processes can have both positive and negative consequences for spatial justice. By implication, policy interventions need to be considered on an incremental basis allowing sufficient time for evaluation of multiple lines of consequences. In the absence of a well-functioning land market, and where transactions are managed in a largely non-transparent manner by intermediaries (i.e. brokers) however, prices can fluctuate wildly according to buyers and sellers’ circumstances and lack of market information, benefiting the few to the detriment of the many. Hence, the emphasis given throughout this research on understanding the individual motivation and ‘registers of meaning’ within the context of spatial justice and exploring in depth the processes involved.
