AbstractInternational organisations increasingly encourage land regularisation programmes as a component of urban policy in developing countries, yet research on the mechanisms of these programmes is limited. This paper examines the land regularisation system in Tijuana, Mexico, which has had limited success after several decades of operation. A theoretical model of the demand for land regularisation in urban areas is developed based on models of demand for registration of agricultural land. A unique combination of census and administrative data on informally developed neighbourhoods in Tijuana is used to test the model empirically. Results are mostly consistent with theory. One of the central predictions, however-that more valuable land will have a higher rate of regularisation-is rejected. When considered alongside the incentives to regularise land, this result suggests that the land regularisation system is not well structured to encourage land market efficiency or the upgrading of low-income neighbourhoods. © 2011 Urban Studies Journal Limited.
