All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

In the framework of the second programme (2008-2010) of the EuropAfrica Consortium, cofinanced by the European Union (a new programme 2011-2013 is actually going on), study cases were produced on the diverse strategies of the farmers to increase their market power in Africa and in Europe.
The report of the Seminar and the publication are available on line in English and in French. See :

The seminar had approached instruments allowing to increase the market power of the farmers and aimed in particular at allowing the organizations of African agricultural producers (of 3 regions of Africa sub Saharan) and of the European Union to exchange their experiences on the subject and to deepen the nature and the conditions of use of these instruments. Case studies were led before and after the seminar, always in connection with the issues of the international seminar and the publication.

These study cases were made in Italy (by Crocevia), in Belgium (by CSA), in the UK (by the UK Food Group), in West Africa (by ROPPA) and in East Africa (by EAFF). We benefitted also from the input of professor István Fehér of the University of Gödöllo, for the study of short circuits in Hungary.
