  • This thesis seeks to identify the role of NGOs in promoting women's land rights in Tanzania. I engage with debates about human rights theory and international human rights law by highlighting responsibility, capability, and cultural legitimacy schools and feminist critiques. My research examines the gendered history of land reform in Tanzania and analyzes original interviews with NGO and university professionals. I find that NGOs are agents that promote human rights in the context of women's land rights in Tanzania.
