Abstract Not long after its discovery in the sixteenth century Surinam developed a plantation economy, needing many slaves from Africa. After the abolition of slavery in 1863, agricultural labour became very scarce. The thesis emphasizes the period 1863-1933, when the government of Surinam actively encouraged labour immigration from India and the Netherlands East Indies. The Government's immigration policy, its implementation and organization and the financing of immigration are discussed.

These indentured labourers were allowed to opt for government settlement schemes after the expiry of their contracts. Thus developed a sector of agricultural smallholders. The final chapter describes the function of the plantations as employers and outlines agricultural development among smallholders.
