Who We Are

We are committed to the agenda of critical thinking about social structures, institutions, actors and processes of change in and in relation to the rural world. The aim of this hub is to foster inquiry into how agrarian power relations between classes and other social groups are created, understood, contested and transformed.

We hope that the resources on this platform will foster dialogue between scholars and activists concerned with agrarian issues across the world. Please join the conversation!
