The programme contains full details of presentations in the plenary and parallel sessions. It also has the full text of abstracts submitted by participants for posters and conference papers.
Contributions have been invited on any aspect of the politics of knowledge within the field of agronomy.
Case studies of historical or present day significance to the developing world are of particular interest. These cases might focus on the history or nature of contestation; actors and coalitions; political and institutional drivers and dynamics; or the implications of contestation (e.g. for the field of agronomy, for researchers and research institutions, for journals, for policy or for farmers).
Applications to join this conference are now closed.
