The School of Social Sciences and the Co-operative and Policy Alternative Centre will host this talk.

South Africa has millions of land hungry rural dwellers who are engaged in multiple, largely survivalist activities in which agricultural production has been a small component, while increasingly concentrated and globalised capitalist agriculture based on the principle of return on capital employs only a few hundred thousand farm workers who themselves are no longer peasants.

 What is the place of food sovereignty, seed sovereignty and the solidarity economy as responses to this reality? Drawing on the work of Ntinga Ntaba kaNdoda, Mazibuko Jara will present this Emancipatory Futures Studies Practitioner Talk organised by the School of Social Sciences and the Co-operative and Policy Alternative Centre.
