Land Reform in Russia

Yale University Press

This chapter reviews the institutional design of land reform legislation passed during the postcommunist period of 1992–99. It reviews effects of land reform during the term of Boris Yeltsin and the behavioral responses during this period and thereafter. The chapter argues that Yeltsin's land reform legislation, though more liberal than that which existed during the Soviet period, also placed significant restrictions on land ownership and land disposal.

Keywords:   land reform, postcommunist period, Boris Yeltsin, land reform legislation, Soviet period, land ownership, land disposal
