Abstract
"The study is based on a review, where possible, of relevant legislation and other legal instruments. Given the difficulties of access to many primary sources, however, the survey also relies on foreign investment guides, country summaries in legal yearbooks, short articles from the news sections of legal periodicals, internet databases, and the somewhat limited academic and professional literature directly on the subject. "The objective of this study is to provide information on the approaches that are, or have been adopted to regulate foreign ownership of land. As such, it aims at providing a framework for analysis and a representative sample of the legal techniques and strategies that have been devised to deal with the issue; it is not intended to be an authoritative summary of the state of the law in this area."
