Reference Mini-review
Anna Stone, 2014/02. Nowhere to Go: Displaced and returnee women seeking housing, land and property rights in South Sudan [Report] Norwegian Refugee Council. Accessed online.

This 78-page report describes how, despite national legislation in favour of women's rights on HLP (housing, land and property), implementation of relevant laws is patchy and often confused, creating local political spaces in which women's interests are often overridden. Among its recommendations, GRSS should do more to make the local administrative mechanisms clearer and more transparent, appointing more women to decision-making positions, and exploring ways of waiving fees for registration and surveying of land for the vulnerable. Aid agencies should avoid working mainly with chiefs.
