Farmers' Rights in the literature

The substantial and increasing body of literature on Farmers' Rights provides a valuable source of insights into the potentials for realizing Farmers' Rights, as well as possible difficulties. Although authors differ in their points of departure, emphases and perspectives, their contributions are largely compatible. The literature provides important points of departure for understanding the subject matter of Farmers' Rights, types of rights, rights holders, and appropriate measures for protecting and promoting these rights. It also draws lessons from initial efforts at realizing these rights, and warns against some tendencies that might prove counterproductive.  More >
