Welcome to “Agriculture and Sustainable Rural Development in Times of Crisis”

Agriculture and Sustainable Rural Development in Times of Crisis
Critical Engagement from a Gender Perspective
Problems of food insecurity and food crisis are inextricably linked to other mutually reinforcing crisis such as economic, finantial, environmental crises as well as armed conflicts. This conference deals with issues of food security and sustainable rural development against the background of these multiple crises. The aim is to critically discuss existing concepts of agricultural and environmental studies from a feminist socio-ecological perspective.
We will adopt the gender perspective to examine the question: How do we have to rethink and reshape the interrelationship between the formal economic sphere, the unpaid reproductive sphere and the environment in the context of different crises in rural spaces?
