June 15, Deadline Extension (Submission of abstracts) – FONCIMED Annual Seminar (Network – CIHEAM-INRA for research and exchange on Mediterranean land tenure)
Category : Call for Papers
The 10th FONCIMED Annual Seminar «Land tenure as an asset for territorial development and the sustainability of rural communities?» will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, 2-4 November 2017.
Four axes will structure the Seminar and all contributions should fall within one of them.
1. New forms of land acquisition, seen from a resilience/ development perspective (cooperation, multi-partnership) and based on efficient utilization of territorial resources
2. Re-territorialization of agriculture considered at the level of (a) local action, with discussion of the viability and location of smallholdings as regards local-based food production systems and emerging territorial synergies, and (b) public policy (national, regional, municipal), where discussion will focus on their potential to support the re-territorialization of agriculture.
3. Links between the re-territorialization of agriculture and environmental considerations at the farm and territory levels. Notions such as environmental capital, ecosystem services, environmental impact, etc. can be brought in to suggest new analytical frameworks or new areas of study.
4. Land as a common good, considered in relation to the issues of responsible territorial governance (pastoral areas, undivided areas, oases, etc.).
