Current Land Policy in Latin America

A. Zoomers G. van den Haar
Price: $ 25

This book offers a critical reflection on current land policies in Latin America. Privatization and individualization of land rights, the corner stone of these policies, are analyzed from different perspectives. Attention is paid to the process of institutional reform and underlying assumptions, indicating some of the major shortcomings and ambiguities. The operation of free land markets is analyzed in relation to its implications for production, social goals (e.g., the rights of women and indigenous people), and sustainable resource management.

The book includes a number of case studies from Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia, and Honduras, address the complexities of land tenure regulation.

This book includes contributions by economists, sociologists, agronomists, historians, anthropologists, and geographers. By bringing about a better understanding of the implications of current land policy and generating concrete policy recommendations it aims to make a positive contribution to the land debate. It is the most comprehensive evaluation to be made of the land policies implemented in Latin America since the 1980s.
