    Paper

    In een agrarisch landschap dat in de afgelopen 50 jaar homogener, sterieler en leger is geworden, ontpoppen zich steeds meer initiatieven van boeren en burgers. Ze willen meer dan wordt aangedragen door overheden. Ze willen een landbouw die minder schadelijk is voor het milieu en die gezonder voedsel voortbrengt. Een landbouw die de natuur en het leven van boeren en burgers kan verrijken. Deze initiatieven zijn divers. Het zijn tuinders die burgers zelf laten oogsten, melk- veehouders die bomen en kruiden in de wei planten, akkerbouwers die direct aan lokale bakkers leveren, boerderijen waarin burgers aandeelhouders worden en meer.

  3. Populism from above and below: agriculture and the political ambiguities of the Workers’ Party in Brazil

    Paper

    Brazil has recently undergone a shift from economic growth to recession, as well as from a left-wing, neo-developmentalist politics to one on the far-right, authoritarian and economically ultraliberal. Such an economic and political U-turn touched upon the countryside in contrasting ways. This paper reflects on the politics of the past. It suggests that the road to regression was paved during the tenure of the Worker’s Party (PT), when politics were considered both popular and progressive. And it was under the PT’s rule when the ‘rural world’ mattered the most for politics.
