  • Russian Agrarian Reform: The Gender Dimension
    Problems of Post-Communism, 2002
    Co-Authors: Stephen K. Wegren, David J. O'brien, Valeri V. Patsiorkovski

  • winners and losers in russian Agrarian Reform
    The Journal of Peasant Studies, 2002
    Co-Authors: Stephen K. Wegren, David J Obrien, Valeri V. Patsiorkovski

    Abstract:

    More than ten years after Russian Agrarian Reform was begun, it is appropriate to reflect upon winners and losers. Using survey data from 800 households in five Russian regions, this article is interested in the effect of Reform within the rural sphere. The analysis focuses on four groups of rural actors within the food production sphere: private farmers, farm managers, specialists employed on state and collective farms and their juridical successors, and farm workers employed on state and collective farms and their juridical successors The first part of the article examines winners and losers using the following variables: self-perceptions about winners and losers, monthly household income, job security, and ownership of certain durable goods. We conclude that private farmers have fared best relative to other occupational groups. On large farms, managers have fared best. The second part of the article analyses why winners win by considering structural and behavioural factors. We conclude that winners win…

    Third World Quarterly, 2007
    Co-Authors: Edward Lahiff, Saturnino M Borras

    Abstract:

    Abstract Market-led Agrarian Reform ( mlar ) has gained prominence worldwide since the early 1990s as an alternative to the state-led approaches widely implemented over the course of the 20th century. This neoliberal policy framework advocates voluntary transactions between ‘willing sellers’ and ‘willing buyers’ and the removal of various ‘distortions’ from land and agricultural markets. Related policies aim to secure and formalise private property rights. Emerging evidence from across the developing world suggests that such policies are incapable of challenging the political and economic power of large landowners and are unlikely to meet the land needs of the rural poor and landless. In key areas such as land transfer, farmer development and programme financing, mlar is shown to be falling far short of its objectives. Meanwhile, it is being actively challenged by national and international peasant movements that are calling for more direct intervention by the state in order to restructure patterns of lan…
