The Conference

The 52nd SIDEA Annual Conference in (Rome-Viterbo) will offer the opportunity for a scientific debate on the key driving forces on the evolution of food supply-chains and their functioning mechanisms. The objective of the Conference is to discuss scientific communications of agricultural economists on the emerging organizational models in the global agro-food systems.

The Conference is structured around two plenary sessions and three parallel sessions. This year, and for the first time, the first Conference plenary session will be jointly organized with FAO and will be held at FAO Headquarters in Rome.

The session, entitled “Strategies and actors of global agricultural and food policies”, will have a strong orientation towards international and institutional themes. It will be characterized by distinguished speeches and will be aimed at promoting the dialogue between scholars, policy makers and international organizations with the objective to build innovative models for the governance of global agro-food systems.
