    A presente pesquisa tem por objetivo investigar as mudanças recentes no espaço agrário da fronteira Brasil-Uruguai, mais precisamente no que diz respeito à questão agrária e camponesa. Com um viés libertário, procurase realizar uma análise a respeito da introdução dos projetos de Assentamentos Rurais de Reforma Agrária no município de Santana do Livramento-RS e das recentes ocupações de terra em Bella Unión-UY. Para tal, elabora-se um resgate histórico a respeito do conceito de campesinato com ênfase na discussão a respeito do anarquismo agrário.

    This paper provides an overview of land reform in South Africa from 1994 to 2011, with the focus on the land redistribution. The government policies and associated implementation since 1994 have not generated expected social and economic results for a number of reasons. Even where land has been transferred, it appears to have had minimal impact on the livelihoods of beneficiaries, largely because of inappropriate project design, a lack of necessary support services and shortages of working capital, leading to widespread underutilization of land.

    Labor mobility is determined by a whole set of different factors, but housing market is clearly one of the most important ones. Individuals do not make employment decisions without taking into account options of housing market. Economy constantly changes and diverse opportunities arise in different locations at different points of time. Badly functioning housing market can cause low labor mobility and restrain the ability of employers to match vacancies in specific locations. The issue of labor mobility is especially vital for developing countries.

    Enterprises use credit to acquire
    productivity-enhancing assets. Rural enterprises in
    developing economies, however, often lack access to the
    credit they need. Key reasons for this lack of access
    include the low level and scattered nature of economic
    activity in rural areas, the enterprises' lack of
    collateral, inadequate capacity among the country's
    lenders to lend in rural areas, and legal and policy

    Land reform can broadly be divided into
    land tenure reform-the establishment of secure and
    formalized property rights in land-and land
    redistribution-the transfer of land from large to small
    farmers. The paper is therefore divided into two chapters.
    The first chapter gives a short narrative of some of the key
    land tenure and land policy issues. While these issues
    remain politically sensitive, there is a solid consensus

    The project initially focused on
    building upon the 1998 Registration Law to develop
    registration procedures, and on getting the Legislative
    Reform Office (LROs) up and running. Cost, affordability,
    and quality of services were important considerations. The
    Project benefited from the country's high education
    levels and relatively low labor costs. Since independence in
    1991, the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic has sought to

    The report, Land Tenure for Social and
    Economic Inclusion in Yemen: Issues and Opportunities was
    completed in December 2009. The report addresses the
    problems of land ownership in Yemen and the various social
    and economic problems associated with the system of land
    ownership. Property rights under Yemeni Law are expressed
    both in custom and statute, but both are informed by shari a
    (Islamic law), which provides the basic property categories

    Evidence is mounting that secure
    property rights have positive effects for poor people in
    general and women in particular. The aim of this report is
    to review what is known about women s access to and control
    over land and real property in urban settings, identifying
    approaches to strengthening property rights that enhance
    women s agency, and sharing key lessons. Section two
    synthesizes the evidence on urban women s priorities with
