IAMO Forum 2017: Eurasian Food Economy between Globalization and Geopolitics

Much like the European Union and the USA, Eurasian countries such as China and the Russian Federation are trying to modify their globalization strategies. The IAMO Forum 2017 aims to provide a platform to discuss ongoing research and different strategies to ensure food security and intensify trade in the context of geopolitical tensions and divergent trade integration efforts. The conference will be jointly organized by IAMO and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Contributions on the following topics are welcome:

• Development and performance of Eurasian food chains;
• Food trade and foreign direct investments;
• Food security and changing consumption patterns;
• Market integration and food chain organization;
• Political economy and institutional environment;
• Globalization strategies, trade agreements, and geopolitical visions;
• Globalization, climate change, and food production;
• Socio-economic consequences in the wake of globalization;
• Risks of geopolitical conflicts and macroeconomic downturns; and
• Future perspectives of the Eurasian food economy.
