For nearly three decades, the Central Asian countries have been undergoing transition. The motivation of the dissertation is driven by various responses of rural societies to agrarian transition, which we find carry common institutional patterns. The research presented in this dissertation aims at understanding whether agrarian reforms rely on formal institutions or were adversely/positively affected by informal ones or rule of power. We address this question through describing and comparing cases of institutional changes in the agrarian sector of three economies in transition : Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. We apply a unique combination of socio-economic, anthropological and comparative analytic approaches to investigate agrarian institutional responses in rural Central Asia. Our empirical data and analysis utilize a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods in order to better address the complex context and interrelationships between various agrarian, social and traditional institutional mechanisms, especially, the significance of informal ones.
