Résumé
This thesis is principally concerned with agrarian transformation in the semi-arid Norte Chico region of Chile. It focuses on one valley in this region that has been particularly affected by the outward orientation of the national economy and with the promotion of non-traditional agricultural exports. The valley in question has become an important exporter of table grapes and the thesis explores the interrelationships between the ’traditional’ and ’non-traditional’ agricultural production systems. The study employs a combined research methodology drawing upon both an extended questionnaire survey and in-depth interviews to explore the way the land tenure systems and labour markets in the valley have been affected by the expansion in export agricultural production. The thesis also examines the way in which these changes have been mediated through local systems of communal land tenure and community organisation. It also explores the way these changes have been manifest at the community and household level, especially with regard to gender roles and relations.
