Abstract: "In this paper the necessity of good governance in the implementation of aspects of the government's land tenure policy will be explored. Land tenure is a vast subject, based on policy, legislation and case law. It is impossible to deal with it comprehensively in this paper. A brief synopsis of aspects of land tenure in the context of good governance will be given, concentrating mainly on land restitution through the government's land restitution programme, and tenure reform introduced by the Communal Land Rights Act 11 of 2004. The purpose is not to elaborate on possible solutions for often insoluble and impractical policies and programmes, but to set the scene for a colloquium on 'Good governance in land administration' during 2010. Therefore, a short exposition of challenges and shortcomings that need to be addressed in the context of public good governance will be given. These topics can be fully discussed during the planned colloquium."
