  • Women’s access to land: the de-feminisation of agriculture in southern Niger ?

    This paper considers the position of women in the social dynamics regulating access to farmland by different members of Hausa households. How does Hausa society manage land ownership within households when changing dynamics and constant challenges from a range of factors require new mechanisms for land redistribution, which are subsequently ...

  • Public Policy in an Entrepreneurial Economy

    In recent years there has been increased focus on understanding the dynamic relationships among entrepreneurship, policymaking, and economic growth. At the heart of research, debate, and practical application is the question: 'Under what conditions can entrepreneurship flourish?' And the corollary: 'To what degree does encouraging entrepreneurship ...

  • Evolving structure of world agricultural trade, (The). Implications for trade policy and trade agreements

     The objective of this book is to highlight and analyze several factors impinging on future agricultural trade developments. These factors include rapidly changing food demand patterns arising from economic growth and associated urbanisation; the level and nature of support and protection provided to agriculture in both developed and developing ...

  • Insect Pest Management

    This book deals with new approaches to insect pest management in field and protected crops using ecologically sound and innovative techniques.
