Young Researchers Meeting on Rural transformation: challenges and possibilities for rural communities

Are you a young researcher, PhD student, post-doc or in the beginning of your research career? Are you focusing your work on understanding the processes of rural transformation?

Welcome to the joint SLU Global and SIANI Young Researchers Meeting in Uppsala 7-8 June and discuss with likeminded. At the meeting there will be a multidisciplinary group of senior scientists present that have vast experiences on the topic, and that will be able to give feedback to you on manuscripts. We hope to attract young researchers from all disciplines.

The meeting is organised around three sub – themes:

1. Agrarian change. Small holder agriculture and trajectories of agrarian change. 

Key words: agricultural modernisation, livelihoods, food security, household strategies, global and regional political economy, farming systems, knowledge, policies, land rights  

2. Migration and urban-rural linkages.  How does increased mobility, flows of remittances and non-farm incomes affect rural economies? 

Key words: gender, youth, labour, societal change, globalisation, technology, entrepreneurship, markets 

3. Climate change and resource degradation. Compounding pressure on natural resources and effects of global warming.
