Shakarneh first gave a historical overview on land registration from the Ottoman period until today and thereby introduced into related laws and regulations. He then emphasized that a system for land registration can constitute a solid foundation to develop Palestinian society and economy. The speaker finally presented measures enhancing such development like creating more investment opportunities, ensuring women’s rights as landowners and taking a stand against the Israeli occupation’s measures to confiscate Palestinian land.
