9789715423069: Power in the village: Agrarian reform, rural politics, institutional change and globalization

The agrarian reform issue is very much alive--on the political agenda of may countries in Asia and Latin America and Southern Africa, bth as a strategy for achieving greater equity and social justice as well as growth and development for the large numbers of poor people in developing and transition economies. There is a wide consensus among agrarian reform experts and advocates that a more equitable access to land and other assets make a positive contribution to the fight against poverty, and the efforts to ensure sustainable growth of the natural environment. But how critical is agrarian eform in a "globalizing" environment? This volume examines how agrarian reform shapes and is shaped by the forces of globalization, producing both desired and unintended consequences. It explores the current state of redistributive reform in the developing world, and attempts to answer the difficult questions leveled against a program that has been with us for more than a century--with mixed results. This volum brings togethr the experience from across the developing and developed world, and underlines the positive contributions to agrarian reform of organizations, citizen's movements, the private sector and the academe.
