This policy brief outlines a brief history of the land tenure system in Kenya from colonization to modern land management practices. Kenya has a mixed system of land tenure between resources held in common by the state and those traditionally owned by the people with limited accession and transfer rights. Special attention is given to the issue of squatters, or those disenfranchised by the current land tenure system and opportunities for collaborative processes between local formal and informal institutions are explored.
