Land Reform Under Structural Adjustment in Zimbabwe: Land Use Change in the Mashonaland Provinces

Front Cover
Nordic Africa Institute, 2000 - Law - 225 pages
This study represents a first systematic effort to document Zimbabwe "s new land uses during the years of economic crisis, the role of the state in promoting them, the differentiation associated with them, not only between black and white farmers, but also among them, and the implications of all these for the political economy of the Zimbabwean land question. The fact that some of the new land uses avoid redistribution of clearly under-utilised large scale commercial farms suggests that the Zimbabwean land question will remain a live political issue for a long time.
