VIDEO: Pr.dr.ir. Jan Douwe van der Ploeg, “The importance of peasant agriculture: a neglected truth” – Public lecture at the IUC

Although hegemonic science obscures both the presence and importance of peasant agriculture in Europe, it composes, nonetheless, an important part of Europe’s agriculture. Ironically, it turns out, in the midst of the current crisis, the most resilient part as well. However, European and national policies mainly continue to bet on entrepreneurial agriculture. In this lecture it is argued that this is as much as betting on a lame horse.
