Logros y perspectivas de la reforma agraria en Colombia


  • Mariano Arango Restrepo


This paper places the current proposals for agrarian reform in their historical and economic context. It traces vicissitudes of the reform process from the “Ley 136” of 1961 to the present. The author considers three broad phases: the gradual evolution of the reform movement from 1962 to 1966, the period of marked reformist activity up 1972, and them the gradual decline of the imputus through to 1984. On the subject of the reforms presently being considered the author draws particular attention to their implication for rural small holders.
