Women’s Access to Land in Contemporary Viet Nam

Women's access to land is often considered in the context of the oppression, liberation, or uniqueness of Vietnam. This study explores the access to land by women in ten provinces of Vietnam that do not follow such traditions.

The research team conducted ethnographic questionnaires and studies in several localities representing eight economic regions of Vietnam. The team chose these locations because they reflect the diversity of the urban, clan, and ethnic backgrounds. In addition to quantitative survey data, in-depth interviews and focus group discussions, the team analyzed 42 court cases relating to inheritance issues in Vietnamese courts from the district to the supreme court.
