Making Markets Work for the Poor: Contents and Discontents

Making Markets Work for the Poor: Contents and Discontents

SEMINAR: The third in a series of seminars examining the assumptions, impacts, evidence, benefits and risks of "making markets work" for small-scale farmers. It will be available as a live video stream, and viewers can submit their own perspectives and ask questions in real time.

30 March 2011 | Paris, France

Billed as "provocations", each seminar in the series brings invited "provokers" together with local and international participants for three hours of debate, streamed and interactive on the web. Between September 2010 and June 2011, five provocations are planned in European cities, with the possibility of additional events in 2012.

The series is supported by the Hivos Knowledge Programme, Small Producer Agency in the Globalized Market. The series is organized by a consortium of research and advocacy organizations, led by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), Hivos and Mainumby. As a collaborating partner, UNRISD will co-host a provocation on inclusive business and producer empowerment in June 2011.
