Call For Papers

The 2020 Asia Pacific Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics Conference (APSafe 2020) will be held in Hiroshima City for three days from December 11 (Friday) to 13 (Sunday), 2020. The Conference will include keynote presentations as well as submitted oral and poster presentations.
The theme of this conference is "Supporting Sustainable Food Systems: Quality Food and Ethical Consumption".
In order to improve the sustainability of food systems, new approaches to agriculture and food production are needed. New technologies in aquaculture and livestock production are presenting possible opportunities for the farming sector but these new approaches also raise a wide range of ethical questions. This conference will explore the ethical dimensions of quality food production and examine possible food futures that may help society address the numerous wicked problems present in the current food system, specifically examining human-animal relationships and the management of ecological systems. The conference will address a number of sub-themes including the topics of: Degrowth, Agroecology, Food Sovereignty, Foodscape, Civic Food Networks, Food Policy and Governance, Foresight Methods, Biodiversity, Circular Economy, Food Law, Sustainability Transition, Veterinary Ethics, Social Practice, Food Futures. All of these topics raise value dilemmas that this conference tries to make more explicit.
Multiple disciplines and professions are invited to present and contribute to this international conference and we welcome early career scholars, students, faculty members, as well as, non-governmental organisations, industry representatives and policy-makers. An international Scientific Committee will review the submitted abstracts.
The APSafe is a sister organization to the European Society for Agriculture and Food Ethics (EurSafe).
The timeline for Conference is included below, further updates and details of the program will be announced on the Conference website.
