Land reform in Russia in 1990-2000-ies, or how land reform was "reformed" during the departmental reorganization

Land reform in Russia in 1990-2000-ies, or how land reform was "reformed" during the departmental reorganization

Journal of Institutional studies, , Vol. 7 (no. 2),

The paper provides an overview of the land reform in Russia's recent history. Analysis of land reform, which started in 1990, shows what actions and what logic led the land sector in the state in which it was at the finish line of the quarter-century reform marathon. The reform process was not linear, it highlighted the steps differing objectives and strategies to achieve them. Land reform is presented as a struggle of different political forces, which were reflected in the redistribution of functions between agencies in lobbying for appointment to senior positions promoted various commands. The authors conclude about the gradual displacement of state regulation of land relations, the deliberate destruction of the land management as a basis for the development of land resources.
