within the DFG-funded project “Ethical issues in agricultural land markets”
The present-day agricultural land markets in the countries under investigation are marked by the dramatic increase of land prices and rents, the growing role of non-agricultural investors, the rise of large-scale holding structures, and the growing demand for the conversion of agricultural land toward non-agricultural uses. All these trends are often felt to have moral significance. The present project is aimed at explicating this significance, exploring the possibilities and limits of the public regulation of agricultural land markets, and developing the conceptual tools for addressing those moral dilemmas whose complexity runs up against the limits of the regulatory potential.
The project activities will tentatively include ethical assessment of agricultural land markets, organization of stakeholder interviews and workshops, discourse analysis, and the construction of the “social fabric matrix”.
1. Suitable candidates have a PhD degree in economics, agricultural economics, business administration, business ethics, sociology
2. Competence in conceptual and empirical research methods, such as discourse analysis, stakeholder interviews, and social fabric matrix
