  1. ERPI 2018 Conference: "Authoritarian Populism and the Rural World"

    17 Marzo 2018 - Evento

    Understanding 'rural' authoritarian populism

    The Emancipatory Rural Politics Initiative (ERPI) focuses on understanding the rise of 'authoritarian populism' in rural settings across the world, as well as the forms of resistance occurring and the alternatives being built. New exclusionary politics are generating deepening inequalities, jobless 'growth', climate chaos, and social division. The ERPI is focused on the social and political processes in rural spaces that are generating alternatives to regressive, authoritarian politics. We aim to provoke debate and action among scholars, activists, practitioners and policymakers from across the world who are concerned about the current situation, and hopeful about alternatives.

    Que las tierras estén en nuestras manos

    Juan Carlos Sáiz

    En los medios

    A muchos les extraña la nueva filosofía de la Política Agraria Común (PAC). Eso de dar subvenciones agrarias al propietario de la tierra y no al agricultor-arrendatario que la trabaja y que genera riqueza con ella (lo habitual en la Región de Murcia) descoloca a cualquiera. Parece un premio a rentistas que ejercen otras profesiones (regadío) y a latifundistas puros y duros (secano).
