- Conference: Agriculture and Sustainable Rural Development in Times of Crisis


The international scientific conference “Agriculture and Sustainable Rural Development in Times of Crisis. Critical Engagements from a Gender Perspective” was organized in honour of Dr. Parto Teherani-Krönner, who retired in May 2013.

Problems of food insecurity and food crises are inextricably linked with other mutually reinforcing crises such as economic, financial, environmental crises as well armed conflicts. This conference deals with issues of food security and sustainable rural development against the background of these multiple crises. The aim is to critically discuss existing concepts of agricultural and environmental studies from a feminist socio-ecological perspective. The focus lies on the question, what such a perspective implies in practice: How do we have to rethink and reshape the interrelationship between the formal economic sphere, the unpaid reproductive sphere and the environment in the context of different crises?
