Colombie : le contexte social de la concentration de la propriété rurale à la fin du XXe siècle


  • Alcides Gomez Jimenez


[eng] Alcides Gomez Jimenez — Colombia : The social context of rural property concentration at the end of the XXth century . An unprecedented phenomenon of land tenure concentration is occurring in rural Colombia. It brings about massive peasant evictions resulting in an increase of poverty and of disparity levels much worse than in cities. This extension of the latifundia is linked to drug trafficking. It uses violent methods of expropriation of the peasantry. As such, the transformation of agricultural land into pastures has been exaggerated, without a parallel increase in livestock. The livestock rearing zones hardly contribute to fiscal revenue and block the functioning of the land market. Agrarian reform in Columbia is as such waiting for its hour.
