This chapter discusses why the pace of the agrarian reform has slowed down under the government of Luíz Inácio Lula da Silva. It emphasizes the challenges facing the landless movement, including that of consolidating the agrarian reform settlements. It shows that under the Lula government, the MST has played a much more influential role than in the past in shaping policy toward agrarian reform settlements. There is also a growing body of evidence of the positive impact of agrarian reform settlements in the municipalities where these are located, as well as the standard of living of the beneficiaries.

Keywords:   agrarian reform, Luíz Inácio Lula da Silva, landless movement, agrarian reform settlements, MST, standard of living, municipalities
