Resumen

HOFFMANN, Odile. The Agrarian Domination: Histories of Pacts and Disruptions in Belize in the 19th and 20th centuries. LiminaR [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.2, pp.32-47. ISSN 2007-8900.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29043/liminar.v17i2.676.

In Belize’s agrarian history, an extreme concentration of private property, coherent with a model of stratified, colonial and slave society, coexisted with a relatively open access to the land by means of lending, leasing, or grants of national lands. To understand this apparent contradiction, I use the notion of “agrarian pact of domination”, which is useful in understanding what negotiating strategies agrarian actors used at different moments, and what rights and obligations were associated with land property. Focusing on the north of the country, by reviewing archives and witness interviews, I locate two moments of rupture during which the agrarian pacts of domination were renegotiated and the models of national citizenship and regional belonging were re-defined

Palabras llave : agrarian history; property rights; land tenure.
