Descriptif
This report is an account of “what is happening on land reform farms ?” The report begins by providing a short background to the land question in South Africa as this explains why land reform came into being. The two case studies (Wales and Mighty land reform projects) that are selected for the research aim to prived a detailed account of the daily encounters at land reform projects. These farms (or projects) have been selected ad randomly. The angel for exploring what is happening on the land reform projects is deliberately first fo all prescriptive as there are not many descriptive accounts of everyday life at land reform projects. In land reform programmes which are seen as the processes through which the goals of the new land policies can be met, have been seen to be a point of a series of interfaces where different actors struggle to gain control over the recently acquired resources and develop strategies and social relationships to achieve that. The cases description also show in some detail what the nature is of the social relationships between land reform beneficiaries as well as develop strategies for managing the project . The analysis will show that much of what is happening in land reform projects is not anticipated by the policies.
