This report summarises the findings of a short-term study of land reform in Elliot District. Recent research on land reform in South Africa has tended to either look at scattered case studies, or has consisted of a broad-brush overview. The idea behind this study, by contrast, is to develop a comprehensive understanding of how land reform functions in a particular area, i.e. Elliot, both to analyse how successful land reform projects are in their own right, and to establish how they affect and are conditioned by the local rural economy and agricultural sector.
