Throughout history, there have been several instances where state or non state actors unjustly expropriated real property from one group and gave it to another. If the two groups were racially, ethnically, or religiously distinct, then this illegitimate property transfer could have produced deep outrage, enduring resentment, and thus could remain a politically explosive issue even today. Figuring out whether or how to address these past property rights violations is one of the most pressing issues facing many developing nations that are transitioning from repressive regimes to democracies predicated on justice and equality. This collection of work is devoted to unraveling and analyzing the various issues these transitional states must consider.
