HS 287F — Land Poverty and Reform

Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.

Examines the evolution of land reform theory and practice around the world. Land inequality and land poverty pose fundamental obstacles to rural development and development more broadly. Students explore problems of land inequality and land poverty, historical and current models of land reform, tools for evaluating different approaches in different contexts, and the need to integrate land policies into larger development visions. Usually offered every year.
