This issue of Land Reform, Land Settlement and Cooperatives includes interesting descriptions of land tenure and related policies in Uganda, Tunisia, the United Republic of Tanzania and Morocco. Two thought-provoking articles on access to land and other assets focus on policies to reduce poverty and the function of markets in the allocation of production resources. In the first, J. Melmed-Sanjak and S. Lastarria-Cornhiel conclude that any reduction in rural poverty requires a series of policy efforts that recognize the links existing between household options of access to assets, the access strategies they adopt and macrostructural changes. In the second article, F. Vogelgesang argues in favour of applying an institutional analysis to examine the possibilities and limitations of an approach that favours market mechanisms as an alternative to the discouraging results of past redistributive reform in Latin America. The article by C. Guanziroli seeks to place the ongoing process of land reform in Brazil in the context of the new orientations and trends of economic growth and globalization.
