IAMO Forum 2014: The rise of the ‘emerging economies’: Towards functioning agricultural markets and trade relations?
25-27 June 2014 | Halle (Saale), Germany
Announcement and Call for Papers
The IAMO Forum 2014 will focus on functionality and effectiveness of agricultural factor and commodity markets. Special emphasis will be placed on countries undergoing transition process and leading emerging economies. Albeit that some of those states gained importance in the global food trade in recent years, their role and scope of influence are still under controversial discussion. Subject of pending analyses include efficiency of agri-food and factor markets as well as their local and international integration. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is envisioned to make a contribution to advancing the diversity of trade relations. The IAMO Forum 2014 will be a platform for presenting up-to-date research findings on these topics. Further thematic foci will include food safety and food price volatility, notably impacts of speculation on functioning of agricultural markets. IAMO Forum 2014 is jointly organised by the Agricultural Applied Economics Association (AAEA), IAMO, and the International Agricultural Trade Research Consortium (IATRC). Deadline for submitting papers is 3 February 2014. Submissions should be sent to:
