Assistant Professor of Local Economic Development and Planning Dr Erica Pani and Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the LSE Geography Department Martina Manara feature in an article entitled ‘Property rights in Tanzania: the tensions of land ownership in informal settlements’.

Published in LSE’s Progressing Planning blog, the article gives insight into the pair’s ongoing research, starting in 2017, on land tenure and property right formalisation and regularisation in Tanzania.

The post outlines their findings, research processes, and the future research plans of Pani and Manara.
