Conflict and land are tied in a complex relation. This relation has various characteristics before, during the armed conflict, and in post-conflict contexts. Land and other resources are many times seen as factors for eruption of violent conflicts, in some circumstances influence the duration and give specific characteristics to the conflict. Land issues play a particular role in the post-conflict contexts. Land was identified as a critical gap in international response capacities and the awareness about the vital importance of addressing the housing, land and property issues within the context of post-conflict state building has increased. This paper, based on literature review, explores the conflicts and post-conflict contexts in relation to land, other resources and land administration. At the end, this paper acknowledges the importance of land and its administration in post-conflict contexts as one of the essential elements in the process of post-conflict state building.
