Markets, Smallholders and Empowerment

Markets, Smallholders and Empowerment

This issue of aims to refocus attention on the critical but largely neglected issue of producer agency: that is, the capacity of producers to make informed choices, and to act on those choices.

Drawing on several detailed case studies – contract farming arrangements that benefit or exploit farmers; guidelines for addressing farm labour interests; and the role of women on small-scale farms – the journal’s contributors offer practical guidance on how to strike the right balance between “economic and political empowerment.”
