#IEA 5 Webinar: Implementing The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA): Lessons from The EAC.(Lessons from Regional Economic Communities for The African Continental Free Trade Area: A Case Study of the East African Community)
Small businesses or enterprises access commercial property in a number of ways, each of which is determined by various factors, for instance their awareness about how the process works or the set of legal procedures that the law requires them to follow. In Kenya, the difficulties faced by small businesses in the property access process are neither well known nor well understood, particularly the precise experiences or challenges these businesses face apart from the high-level policy issues that might exist in the area of property rights protection and enforcement. Understanding these experiences will highlight the implications of the existing property rights regime and therefore help identify the immediate reform priority in the sector.
Property rights are among the most fundamental principles enshrined in Article 17 of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights and constitutionally protected in most states. Despite this worldwide legal recognition of the importance of property rights to building peaceful, democratic, and prosperous societies, access to and protection of property rights vary greatly in practice.
