This negotiation chapter covers issues relating to property. The main issues concern (a) property arrangements and remedies available for dispossessed owners and current users of different types of property as well as the property regimes and conditions in territorially adjusted areas and all other areas, and (b) mechanisms for implementation and monitoring of property arrangements including among others the property commission, its structure, mandate and functions. This chapter is closely linked with the chapter on territory.
All issues are negotiated based on the agreed framework for a federal solution underpinned by the principles of bi-zonality, bi-communality, political equality, single sovereignty, single international personality and single citizenship.
The below section covers (a) property as one of the elements of strategic agreement within the Guterres Framework based on various documents and statements available to the public, (b) the progress on the chapter of property achieved in the period 2014-2017 including issues of agreement and divergence at the end of the conference in Crans-Montana.
