Faire face aux risques en agriculture. Quels enjeux, quelles perspectives ? / Coping with risks in agriculture. What challenges and prospects?

Veranstalter: UniLaSalle, Chaire Management des risques en agriculture and Groupama Paris Val de Loire

Ort:Collège des Bernardins, Paris, France

Agriculture is a particularly complex sector due to multiple risks and uncertainties farmers face at different levels (farm level, international level…). Farmers are confronted to risks whose likelihood and frequency increase. The objective of this international symposium is to bring together international researchers in social sciences and agricultural professionals to answer several questions that arise in agriculture. What is the offer and demand of risk management instruments? How do farmers perceive risks today?

The conference will be in English and French languages (simultaneous interpretation service will be available for the plenary sessions).

European Association of Urban History Conference 2018

Veranstalter: Clare Griffiths (Cardiff University, School of History, Archaeology and Religion) and Tim Soens (Centre for Urban History, Department of History, University of Antwerp)
