    Land and land reform cover a great range, both in terms of the geographical and development status of the countries considered, and of the variety of perspectives on the issues. The articles in this issue of Land Reform, Land Resettlement and Cooperatives reflect this breadth in a variety of ways. The articles range geographically from the paper addressing land and agrarian reform in Colombia, by Professor Darío Fajardo, to a consideration of the land reforms currently under way in Scotland, by Douglas Macmillan, Ken Thomson and Bill Slee.

    The purpose of this study is to assess
    agriculture's competitiveness in Colombia. During the
    past 12 years, Colombia's agricultural sector has
    performed poorly, resulting in the continuation of extensive
    rural poverty. Improving the sector's competitiveness
    is the only sure and lasting way to improve its growth
    performance and reduce poverty. Thus, the main objectives of
    this study are to assess: (a) the sector's current and

    consequences. Numerous studies show that the success of

    increases tenure security for those at risk of displacement,
