Le système foncier comorien de 1841 à 1975

Abstract : This purpose of this research is to attempt to study how the Comorian land ownership system as regards its organization functioning during the pre-colonial, colonial and post colonial period. This system actually reflects the side by side existence of both traditional and colonial structures. It has however undergone deep changes with three different types of ownership, the customary, the Islamic and the colonial modes of property acquisition. The choice of this time frame is deliberate since it has enabled us to analyze the weakness of the system before, during colonial period and up to the independence in 1975. This study will first look closely and exhaustively at the permanent mode property acquisition continuous changes and challenges related to the mode of property acquisition such as inheritance, donation, sale contract, exchange, accession and prescription. At the same time, it will examine the general and specific features of the socio cultural context. Finally it will present the possibilities and land policies leading to a written document for regulation estate and land while keeping a balanced ecological environment in relation to a true policy promoting human sustainable and development.
