From dispossession to disappointment: neo- liberalism and South African land reform policy
Van der Walt, Lucien
University of the Witwatersrand. History Workshop.
Land ownership in South Africa is inequitable and characterised by exploitative social relations. The land policy process represents the triumph of the dominant powerful groups, mainly the landowning classes. The concerns of ordinary rural people have been marginalised. The paper examines the processes that lead to the ANC's land reform policy.
Paper presented at the Wits History Workshop: Forging the links between historical research and the policy process, 18-19 September 1999.
