Call For Papers


The objective of this international symposium is to bring together international researchers in social sciences (economics, management, law, sociology, anthropology, history, geography, political science, philosophy, agronomy…) and agricultural professionals (farmers, agricultural chambers, cooperatives, ministries and other public authorities, insurance companies, agricultural experts, unions, banks, agribusiness firms…) to answer several questions that arise in agriculture. What is the offer and demand of risk management instruments? How do farmers perceive risks today? What different strategies do they develop to handle risks (on-farm instruments or market instruments such as insurance or futures markets)? How do farmers manage risks ex ante (diversification, marketing and production contracts, insurance…) and ex post (adaptation strategies following the occurrence of an event)? How can farms become more robust and resilient to overcome extreme events? What should the role of agricultural policy as regards agricultural risk management be? What do we make of the past agricultural policies in various countries of the globe?
This symposium will allow an update on the state-of-the-art in risk management in agriculture, with the feedback and experience of agricultural professionals and research results from international academics of the social sciences. The goal of this conference is to contribute to a joint reflection on the challenges farmers are facing today in terms of risks and how they cope. This symposium aims at providing guidance to farmers and policy-makers for a more viable and resilient agriculture.

Abstracts and workshop proposals are due 1st of October 2017, see https://www.chaire-management-risques-agriculture.org/conference
