Two new working papers published in November 2016 concluded our Working Paper Series on the China & Brazil in African Agriculture project.
Beyond ‘Family Farming Versus Agribusiness’ Dualism: Unpacking the Complexity of Brazil’s Agricultural Model examines the multifaceted relationship between agribusiness and family farming and looks at the different concepts associated with these terms.
Social Movements, Agrarian Change and the Contestation of ProSAVANA in Mozambique and Brazil examines one of Brazil’s international agricultural cooperation projects with Mozambique, and influences that have shaped the project.
The two papers make up the final addition to the 24 papers produced in the Working Paper Series, which presents research over the last 4 years on Chinese and Brazilian relationships with farmers, business, civil society and states in Africa. The CBAA project examined in detail how Brazil, China and other ‘rising powers’ are changing African agricultural development with case studies from Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
