International Symposiumon Work in Agriculture_ISWA - Clermont-Ferrand - New dates : March 29th - April 1rst, 2021



The 2nd International Symposium on Work in Agriculture was held March 29th - April 1st  2021 !

Papers, posters and replays of the plenary sessions are on open access in this website
The Summary Report of the International Symposium on Work in Agriculture is available   read >>


The International Symposium on Work in Agriculture (ISWA) brought together 434 registered participants from 46 countries in a fully virtual format. More than a quarter of the participants were from France, just under a quarter from elsewhere in Europe, and about a quarter each from the Americas (Brazil, United States) and from Africa-Asia-Oceania (India, Morocco, Australia, etc.).

It is estimated that 1.3 billion people work in agriculture (family farmers, salaried workers), i.e. 27% of the world’s working population. The amount of research on the subject of work in agriculture is not commensurate with the sector’s importance in terms of providing employment and as a consequence we are poorly informed about the issues.

The Symposium’s objective was to bring together an international community around issues of work in agriculture in order to:

  • Foster a dialog between the often disciplinary and compartmentalised aspects of issues of work
  • Bring together views on work in the Global North and the Global South
  • Encourage the development of research, training and extension collaborations.
