|dc.description.abstract||Restitution is a constitutionally mandated programme aimed at redressing the
injustices of the apartheid era. Land rights are being addressed via a legal
administrative process in order to make some form of reparation.
The mission of the Commission on the Restitution on Land Rights is to have
persons or communities, in the Western Cape province, who were dispossessed
of property after 19 June 1913 as a result of past racially discriminatory laws or
practices, restored to such property or receive just and equitable redress.
The restitution process is the first programme in South Africa that aims to restore
people to the land from where they were dispossessed. The processes and
procedures involved are very complex, which could result in slow delivery.
The research attempts to determine the impact of monetary compensation as a
form of land restitution on the current life-styles of Paarl residents. The
research will focus on financially settled claims. The reason for selecting Paarl
as a case study was because of the demographics and diversity of the region.
This study also includes the history of forced removals in South Africa as well as
the local international restititution processes. The study has a descriptive
approach. Primary data will be collected by means of questionnaires based on
the living standard measurement. The questionnaires will focus on the life-styles
of people prior to dispossession and their life-styles after receiving their
This study may provide a positive or a negative critique on the restitution
process. The study attempted to determine whether restitution provides a better
quality of life to the disadvantaged, displaced people of our country and provides
an indicator for future similar endeavours.||en_US
