Agrarian reform

Susie Jacobs Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

Abstract This article explores key issues around land and agrarian reforms. Beginning with definitions, it moves on to discuss debates over political intent and economic outcomes of (redistributionist) reforms as well as three current issues: gender, land rights and land reforms; neoliberal ‘reforms’ and land titling and land reforms’ contemporary relevance. It concludes that land and agrarian reforms continue to be of much importance for poverty alleviation, food security and sustainable agriculture, particularly in a world framed by neoliberal policies.
