With land ownership a continuing concern in Darfur, restitution is the ‘right step’

18 July 2018

Land ownership remains a major source of intercommunal strife in Sudan’s Darfur region, so those dispossessed should be entitled to restitution, says the UN, in line with the law of the land.

“Restitution policy is the right step to find durable solutions” for those internally displaced, said Pierre Emmanuel Ubalijoro, Chief of the Governance and Community Stabilization Section of the UN and African Union operation in Darfur (UNAMID), in an interview for UN News, and the mission recently organized sensitization workshops to raise awareness of the whole issue, as he told Setyo Budi.
