This paper examines the experiences of implementation of land reform policies in the Eastern Cape through a series of case studies. Attempts at redistribution, restitution and land tenure reform have thrown up a variety of models and approaches. The pros and cons of each are evaluated, and the challenge of developing a more integrated, livelihoods oriented approach discussed.
