  • The Agricultural Policy trilemma: On the wicked nature of Agricultural Policy making.
    Land use policy, 2020
    Co-Authors: Jostein Vik

    Agricultural Policy has been seen as exceptional, compartmentalized and complex. Consequently, Policy making in agriculture has been portrayed as particularly difficult – sometimes as an example of a ‘wicked problem’. In this paper I argue that Agricultural Policy is more than ‘just’ a complex and wicked problem. It tends to be inbuilt contradictions in the form of trilemmas in Agricultural Policymaking, which imply that some combinations of core goals are impossible to reach. In this article I develop and illustrate the concept of an Agricultural Policy trilemma with Norway as a case – a plausibility probe. I argue that the concept of a trilemma may be a useful analytical tool in analysing Policy and shifting Policy priorities. I describe the development, and workings, of the trilemma from the 1970’s to the beginning of the corona crisis in 2020.

  • Agricultural Policy in the European Union: An overview
    , 2013
    Co-Authors: Stefan Tangermann, Stephan Von Cramon-taubadel

    [Conclusions] All Policy making, including for the Agricultural sector, is of idiosyncratic nature and differs widely from country to country. However, due to its supra-national dimension the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy is a very special case that is in no way even vaguely comparable to the Agricultural Policy regime in any other part of the world. The specificity of the CAP relates to several factors, including the historical origin, the process of decision making, the financing regime, and the global significance of the EU’s Agricultural sector.

  • Reform of the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy and Agricultural Policy’s Strategies for Ukraine
    Ukraine on the Road to Europe, 2001
    Co-Authors: Stephan Von Cramon-taubadel, Ludwig Striewe

    Talk of Ukraine’s membership in the European Union is often couched in terms of dreams and visions1.Agriculture, all mud and manure, is not necessarily the stuff of dreams and visions. But while Europe is many things – and certainly more than the EU or the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) – in practical terms this CAP is one of the most important, expensive and controversial incarnations of Europe. It is still true that spending on the CAP accounts for roughly one half of the entire EU budget. If the EU’s regional Policy expenditures in rural areas are included, this share increases considerably. At the same time, agriculture remains an important sector of the Ukrainian economy, both in terms of its share of GNP and its share of total employment. For these reasons, agriculture and Agricultural Policy in the EU and Ukraine are likely to play a major role in any attempt to foster Ukraine’s European integration. The central and at times debilitating role that agriculture is playing in the current negotiations between the EU and the potential new members in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) foreshadows what might be expected in analogous negotiations with Ukraine. In the following Section we begin by speculating what impact EU accession would have on Ukraine’s agriculture. Based on this speculation and projections of how EU and Ukrainian agriculture might be expected to develop between now and the date of some future accession, we then consider implications for the design of Agricultural Policy in Ukraine.

  • Agricultural Policy Processes and the Youth in Malawi
    SSRN Electronic Journal, 2014
    Co-Authors: Mariam Mapila

    Evidence exists which shows growing disillusionment with and disinterest in Agricultural-based livelihoods among the youth in Africa south of the Sahara. This disillusionment raises concerns for the future of agriculture for the developing world as it can lead to higher rural urban migration, unemployment and lowered Agricultural productivity. The engagement of youth in Agricultural Policy formulation processes is seen as one avenue for motivating youth engagement in agriculture. This research seeks to develop a contextual understanding of the level of engagement of youth in agriculture thus providing evidence which can be used to stimulate youth involvement in the sector. Using a mixed-methods approach, this study analyzes the determinants of the engagement by southern African youth in Agricultural Policy processes using Malawi as a case study. Factor analytic results show that four interlinked latent factors determine youth engagement in Agricultural Policy processes: political patronage, availability of social amenities, access to information and educational services, and physical accessibility of the community. Results of a social netwnetwork analysis demonstrate that government departments at the local level that are mandated to work on youth issues are the main hubs of information for youth in agriculture, with the Ministry of Agriculture playing a secondary role. Furthermore, the results show that youth in agriculture have little or no direct interactions with each other; and where interactions do exist, they are weak. Therefore, youth remain on the periphery of Agricultural Policymaking networks, and their role in shaping Agricultural Policy dialogues is negligible. This is attributable not only to lack of a deliberate government Policy to include the youth but also lack of a unified youth platform. Conclusions are that in southern Africa the onus is on the youth to ensure that they are effectively engaged in Agricultural Policy dialogue. The creation of unified youth platforms for engaging with Agricultural Policymakers is essential for improving youth engagement in the Policy process. Without such platforms, the voice of the youth on Agricultural Policy issues will remain barely audible among the cacophony of voices of other Agricultural stakeholders.
