“Migration, Agriculture and Rural Development. A conversation with Domenica Farinella and Michele Nori”
Domenica Farinella and Michele Nori investigate the dynamics reshaping human and natural landscapes in the European agrarian world, with a specific focus on Mediterranean Europe. In this webinar, they will examine more marginal rural settings, where the potential for agricultural intensification is structurally limited. These are the areas which have borne most of the consequences of the geographical and socio-economic polarization of development patterns and have been particularly impacted by the recent crisis. In these settings, immigration can help counterbalance the dynamics of an ageing and declining local population. Today, immigrant communities are relevant not only as an agricultural workforce and as providers of precious socio-ecosystem services, but also as new citizens of rural communities whose contribution is critical to maintaining the local socio-economic and territorial fabric.
This webinar is part of the Eurac Research online series “Diversity Matters” hosted by the Migrations and Diversities research group. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the webinar series explores the impact of migrations, diversities and mobilities on increasingly superdiverse territorial realities. The series is a forum for experts to share their work and expertise with an audience of fellow academics, students, decision-makers and practitioners.
