Social policy as interventions by government and as an academic discipline developed in contexts where formal property rights were already well defined. As social policies travel to contexts where property rights are informally defined or where the majority of the population has no property rights, core concepts of the discipline require revision. This themed section revisits the concept of social citizenship in the context of property rights in land.
