International Association on Work in Agriculture

Who we are?

Logo IAWA

We are a group of researchers engaged on the study of work in agriculture. In a diversity of organizations in different continents and countries, with diverse disciplinary and theoretical approaches, and empirical realities. We are interested in multidisciplinary perspectives and discussions on important practical issues on work in agriculture. Speaking of agriculture include all productions of primary sector (livestock, crops…) and its relations with value chains and advisors services.

Why is it important?

Although work is a relevant theme in agricultural world, its consideration is taken differently all over the world. Researches and empirical reports reveal many imbalances from region to region. We understand that this association is a fruitful arena, essential to share ideas, to improve learning and knowledge flow, and to promote benchmarking in a theoretical and methodological way. From a narrow perspective, agriculture concerns a local network of activities, but globally it assumes much greater perspectives on labor market, labor division, and economic and social dynamics. To understand the dynamics of work in agriculture, production, social life, human action and market need to be taken together. That interaction makes reality more complex and diverse, which deserves a place of discussion and share of identity.
