The Policies of Land Reform in South Africa

An analysis of actors and institutions based on four case studies

By David Betge

This book examines South Africa's historical project of redistributing agricultural land to formerly disadvantaged people. It analyzes the institutional framework of this reform and the different actors involved on all levels. The complex interactions at the level of implementation are uncovered through the comparison of four cases of land reform. The book provides an answer to the question as to why, almost two decades after the end of apartheid, many people still struggle for the land that was promised to them. (Series: edition: forschung)
