General question for the conference

The current context in Europe and elsewhere bears multiple uncertainties and risks concerning food, public health, the geopolitical situation, the environment (including climate) and energy sources. Since the beginning of 2024, farmers have mobilised in Europe and beyond to ask for decent prices and decent livelihoods. Agricultural market regulation can be a way to get out of the crisis. This is all the more necessary given that right-wing groups have been trying to capture the political momentum and farmers' movements, in particular in order to influence the elections in the European Parliament and to attack the environmental agenda linked to the Green deal.

What lessons can be drawn from the successes and failures of past policies to regulate agricultural markets, in Europe and elsewhere in the world, to rebuild the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) on the basis of food sovereignty1 and enable the agroecological transition?


The journal Economie Rurale is a partner of the conference: a special issue or special forum in this journal may be organized for selected papers from this conference, appropriate to the journal's editorial line.
