The BRICS Initiative for Critical Agrarian Studies (BICAS) has issued a Call for Papers for an international conference with an African focus, with emphasis on transformations in food systems and implications for policy responses.
The conference, “Rural Transformations and Food Systems – The BRICS and Agrarian Change in the Global South”, will be held in Cape Town on 20-21 April. The deadline for the call for papers is Friday 14 February 2015.
This conference follows on initial meetings of a founding BICAS collective in Beijing in 2013 and Brasilia in 2014 and the highly successful international academic conferences organised by the Land Deals Politics Initiative (LDPI) – Global Land Grabbing (Sussex, 2011) and Global Land Grabbing II (Cornell University, USA, 2012).
