A Guide to Housing, Land and Property Law in the Gaza Strip, October 2015



Land is a core component of stability for any society. For individuals, the availability of land guarantees shelter, housing and security and, very often, a livelihood. Land is a physical resource and also a gateway to the development and well-being of a society and its people. The control over land and its natural resources often causes disputes between individuals, between individuals and the State, or the eruption of conflict between neighbouring States.
