Current changes in globalized agriculture, including those associated with rising demand for biofuels, raise critical questions regarding the degree to which rapid agribusiness led agricultural development and the increased penetration of agricultural commodity markets into remote areas may lead to poverty alleviation and promote rural development, escalate inequality and increase local conflict and community tension and contribute to environmental problems and climate change impacts. This workshop will analyse the social, economic, governmental, and environmental
processes associated with this agrarian transition. It will focus on the practical, policy, and theoretical questions at the centre of important international academic and policy debates in a comparative, cross-country discussion.
