|Notes||Caption title. “Cultural knowledge report Human Terrain System, Research Reachback Center.” “19 Aug 2010”. “Tracking number: RRC-AF13-10-008”. “Unclassified FOUO [For Official Use Only].” Summary: “• The difficult process of establishing land ownership in Afghanistan is further complicated by the practice of illegal land seizures by the ‘land mafia. Individuals involved with the land mafia are frequently well-connected government officials or military commanders, and [allegedly] include prominent members of the Karzai family. There is little recourse and usually no compensation provided for those who had their property confiscated. Little change can be expected as long as high-ranking officials and powerbrokers fail to recognize the property rights of citizens.”—(p. 2).|
