Abstract:Since 1971 Algeria has been in the throes of a much-publicised 'Agrarian Revolution' centred on a programme of agrarian reform. The policies of the Algerian Agrarian Revolution consisted of a three-phased redistribution of land and livestock; the organisation of recipients of land into various types of production co-operatives; the co-ordinated grouping of reform co-operatives and pre-established autogestion and private farms into service co-operatives (CAPCS); the establishment of peasants' unions (UNPA); and the improvement of rural settlement structures through a programme of new 'socialist villages'. The results are examined: Preliminary results of the first and second phases - Criticism of the limited interim results - The third phase - the pastoral sector - The reorganisation of rural settlement - Conclusions. Notes, tab.
