IAMO Forum 2018 "Large-scale agriculture – for profit and society?"

26 June 2018 - 27-29 June 2018 | IAMO | Halle (Saale) | Germany

The IAMO Forum 2018 provides a platform for research that investigates the economic, managerial and social aspects of large-scale agriculture as well as institutional frameworks that enable the persistence of large agricultural enterprises.

The conference’s geographical focus is particularly on the transition countries of Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union, and East Asia as well as developed and emerging countries in Europe, the Americas and Australia. We welcome contributions providing insights into topics such as:

  • Corporate governance;
  • Corporate social responsibility;
  • Risk management and finance;
  • Human resource management;
  • Competition on factor and output markets;
  • Welfare and distributional justice in rural areas, or
  • Environmental implications and challenges.

The conference contributions may stem from a variety of methodological approaches ranging from micro-level analyses of farm management and econometrics to institutional, socioeconomic and geographic investigations of large-scale agribusiness at the regional and cross-national level. Inter- and transdisciplinary contributions are particularly welcome.

The IAMO Forum will be held at IAMO’s conference facilities. Conference language will be English.
