Les évolutions de la politique agraire de Cuba dans le cadre de l’actualisation du modèle économique et social

By Dayma Echevarría and Michel Merlet


In Cuba, between 1959 and 2008, no large range land redistribution to individual producers had been considered. Since 1990 several redistribution processes of land were implemented with important impacts, but none of them was so deep in terms of area scale. Since 2008 Cuba has developed a process of non-used land distribution aimed to producers having little or no land. This mesure represents an important innovation in agrarian policy. Such a radical change is worth being described and analyzed, although little information on the matter has been published. Besides, there are not many analyses available regarding agricultural structure evolution, particularly small production. The property and/or usufruct relationship and the rules for rights of transmission are another topic that has been little documented. From fieldwork observations done in Cuban rural areas, literature review and the analysis of available statistics, this paper focuses on this land transformation process within a wider historical framework, and begins to explore forgotten topics related to the agrarian issue in Cuba
