    BRICS

    01 Enero 2015
    Tema

    The economic and political rise of the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) has far-reaching implications for global agrarian transformation as key sites of production, circulation and consumption of agricultural commodities. In each of the BRICS countries, profound changes are underway in rural society and agrarian economies. These vary from concentration in landholdings, changes in rural-urban links, migration, promotion of smallholder farming alongside the rise of corporate agribusiness, class differentiation of smallholders and family farmers, new forms of agri-business upstream and downstream of farming, vertical integration in value chains, supermarketization – and different combinations of these. The BRICS initiative in Critical Agrarian Studies (BICAS) is a collective of largely BRICS-based or connected academic researchers concerned with understanding the BRICS countries and their implications for global agrarian transformations. Critical theoretical and empirical questions about the origins, character and significance of complex changes underway need to be investigated more systematically.

    Reactie op de nota "Wat de Wereld Verdient" van minister Ploumen

    11 Abril 2013
    Press release

    De FGG ziet ernstige tekortkomingen in de visie van minister Ploumen. Het rotsvaste geloof in de vrije markt, de nadrukkelijke financiële steun voor het bedrijfsleven zonder voldoende garanties voor duurzaamheid, het wegnemen van regels voor internationale investeringen en handel, het zijn allemaal tekenen dat de nota van minister Ploumen tekort schiet als het gaat om bestrijden van armoede en oplossen van ernstige milieuproblemen.
