08 Nov Call for abstracts 21-23 March 2019, Agadir (Morocco) 6th International Seminar: Migrations, Agriculture, Food and Sustainable Development: Africa and Europe (and beyond) facing the new challenges of globalization
After the seminars organised in Bergamo (2013), Murcia (2014), Athens (2015), Madrid (2017) and Marseille (2018), the 6th international seminar will be organised in Agadir from the 21st to the 23rd March 2019 by the Laboratory on Migrations, Spaces, Cultures and Societies of Southern Morocco in partnership with the Faculty of Arts and Human Sciences of Agadir from Ibn Zohr University, the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), LabexMed (Marseille/France) and the Association of Researchers in Migrations and Development (ACM – Agadir /Morocco).
This scientific event is coordinated by Mohamed Bouchelkha, Ibn Zohr University (Agadir) and Yoan Molinero Gerbeau, CSIC (Spain).
This international seminar has the same spirit as the previous scientific meetings. Its objective is to deepen reflections, analyses and allow fruitful exchanges between specialists and experts on this fundamental question: how agriculture, food, labour and capital mobility are becoming a major issue for the whole planet? Indeed, agriculture and its workforce play a central role in maintaining the global system in which global chains, international migration and centreperiphery relations interact.
However, in addition to the regions of study that have been prioritized in previous seminars, this event will attempt to deepen the reflection on this issue in the African context. Indeed, agriculture in this latter part of the world is facing blatant paradoxes: difficulties in meeting the food needs of its population while at the same time it supplies global markets with agricultural products, it attracts investors and large agro-industrial companies, and records increasingly impressive migrations of local populations.
