The adoption of the 1994 Colombian land reform resulted from a process of intense negotiation between different groups within the land policy subsystem. The three main coalitions that can be identified are the MALR advocate coalition, the MALR opponents and the MALR-skeptics. The market advocate coalition was led by experts from the World Bank and technocrats from the Colombian Agriculture Ministry who considered the MALR the most efficient way to distribute land. Throughout the 1990s, the World Bank promoted8 the MALR as a new mode of redistributive agrarian reform, free from the alleged inefficiency and corruption of state-led interventions,9 and coherent with the imperatives of the “second generation” of structural reform10 (Van Zyl, Kirsten and Binswanger 1995, Burki and Perry 1997, Deininger and Binswanger 1999).
