dc.description.abstractIn 1994, South Africa began the long and difficult process of rebuilding the country post-apartheid. One of` the most pressing issues for the ANC Government was that of land reform. In a country facing considerable problems stemming from poverty and unemployment, state-driven land reform was seen as a crucial part of the programme for reconstruction and development in South Africa. A key element in the land reform process is restitution of land to Black South Africans. The land restitution procedure differs considerably from the native title process in Australia. Whilst native title in Australia focuses on establishing the existence of prior rights by reference to custom and tradition, land restitution in South Africa is a pro-active programme for the reparation of past injustices by the state. As such, it can provide Australia with an important example of how practical steps can be taken towards reconciliation with its Indigenous people.
