Agrarian reform in the Dominican Republic


, : Agrarian reform in the Dominican Republic. Searching for agrarian reform in Latin America: 305-337

While the Dominican agrarian reform initially benefited (between 1962 and 1972) from having Trujillo's lands to distribute and did not have to go through expensive and conflictive expropriations, the rate of settlement was slow and the land distributed was not highly productive. In the late 1960s, pressures from the landless increased. The reform was given a new impetus after the implementation of the potentially radical legislation of 1972.
