Because of changes in some underlying factors, land is increasingly becoming a source of conflicts in Africa. We estimate the determinants of land conflicts and their impacts on input application in Kenya by using a recent survey of 899 rural households.

Un caso de ocupación de tierras y legalización, apelando a la soberanía nacional en frontera. Se encuentra en un contexto dicotómico, el poder central en una zona fronteriza lejana y la necesaria integración en dos economías, dos culturas, dos grupos de un territorio descuidado y olvidado por sus respectivos Estados. Por eso, se trata de un tema interesante de acceso a la tierra.
