Agricultural Development, the State, and the Role of Knowledge

CROP POVERTY BRIEF 49: By Reidar Øygard (PhD candidate at the Department of Administration and Organization Theory at the University of Bergen)

February 2019



This Special Issue Brief is part of a series of short research notes from an international workshop on “Perspectives on the Democratic Developmental State" held in Cape Town in February 2018, supported by the CROP/UiB-UKZN-CODESRIA UTFORSK Partnership for Poverty and Sustainable Development Studies.

The long-held view that agricultural research, education and extension belong to the public domain has been undermined since the late 1970s and replaced by a neoliberal conception of the role and functioning of such agents in the agricultural development process. However, the actual results of these reforms deviate strongly from the projected outcome in terms of sector progress.
