Increasing municipalization of land

Synonyms:
Local authority land ownership
Description:
Transferring ownership or use of land to local organs of government (municipalities).
Context:
This movement grew as a counter-idea to Lenin's agrarian reforms which emphasized state controlled land. The Menshiviks first advocated this approach during the Revolution of 1905-07 in Russia.
Counter Claim:
Municipalization of land in contrast to nationalization of land is unworkable since it proposes social change without economic reform and ignores the question of central government.
