Abstract:(Abridged abstract.) Both schemes can be regarded as a continuation of the colonial policy to expel the traditional producers from their land and to subjugate them under the capitalist mode of production. The Kenana project is a capitalist enterprise with a foreign management. Its approach to transform former nomads and small farmers to wage workers by economic incentives failed so far. The Assalaya project has a Sudanese management. It tries to incorporate traditional values and traditional hierarchies in the organization of labour. Although the wage standard in general is low, the qualified workers are quite motivated, as working conditions are appropriate. Any perspective of proletarization is not realistic in the short run for the workers of both projects.
