Conference - Young People, Farming & Food: The Future of the Agrifood Sector in Africa. Call for Paper

The Call for Papers for the conference Young People, Farming & Food: The Future of the Agrifood Sector in Africa is now open. This international conference is being sponsored by the Future Agricultures Consortium (FAC) and the Institute of Statistical Social and Economic Research (ISSER) and will take place 19-21 March 2012 in Accra, Ghana.  The conference will critically examine, from both research and policy perspectives:
  • Dominant and alternative framings and narratives, and recent empirical data, relating to how young people engage with the agrifood sector in Africa (as producers, entrepreneurs, employees, consumers and citizens)
  • The dynamics of change in different components of the agrifood sector and the implications of these dynamics for young people
  • The implications for young people of alternative policy approaches to the development of the agrifood sector.
