Le gouveroement de Terre-Neuve amorca, en 1953, un programme de relocalisa-tion visant a demenager les habitants des petits villages de peche (outport) vers les grands centres qui offrent plus de possibilites. Les quatre monographies que nous couvrons ici discutent les resultats de ce programme ainsi que les reactions des insulaires eux-memes. Ces rapports sont bases sur des etudes effectuees de 1966 a 1968. Trois d'entre eux sont des etudes de cas de relocalisation et de changement social dans certaines regions de Terre-Neuve. L'etude d'Ottar Brox presente une vue generate des conditions economiques et sociales de la Province. On considere que Terre-Neuve possede une economie dualiste. Les rapports con-tiennent un certain nombre de recommandations specifiques.

In 1953, the government of Newfoundland initiated a resettlement programme to move people from the small outports to larger centres with more opportunities. The four reports discuss the results of this programme, and the reaction of the people on the island to them. They are based on research carried out in 1966–1968. Three reports are primarily case studies of resettlement and social change in different parts of Newfoundland. The report by Ottar Brox provides an overview of the social and economic conditions in Newfoundland, which is identified as having a dualistic economy, in which the two halves are separated by a “conversion barrier.” The reports contain a number of specific recommendations.
