    Recognition of the importance of institutions that provide security of property rights and relatively equal access to economic resources to a broad cross-section of society has renewed interest in the potential of asset redistribution, including land reforms. Empirical analysis of the impact of such policies is, however, scant and often contradictory. This paper uses panel household data from India, together with state-level variation in the implementation of land reform, to address some of the deficiencies of earlier studies.

    Buying, selling and mortgaging farmland
    are still rare in Eastern and Central Europe. Not
    surprisingly, given the level of risk in many of these
    countries, short-term transactions, especially leasing, are
    more common. These short-term transactions do almost as well
    as land sales in allocating resources. Making them more
    secure by improving simple registration and enforcement
    systems and increasing public access to information on what

    Ownership and control over assets such
    as land and housing provide direct and indirect benefits to
    individuals and households, including a secure place to
    live, the means of a livelihood, protection during
    emergencies, and collateral for credit that can be used for
    investment or consumption. Unfortunately, few studies -
    either at the micro or macro levels- examine the gender
    dimensions of asset ownership. This paper sets out a

    given commodity price volatility, growing human and
    environmental pressures, and worries about food security,

    productivity, especially in Africa. Smallholder productivity
    is essential for reducing poverty and hunger, and more and
