IAMO Forum 2013 "Rural areas in transition: Services of general interest, entrepreneurship and quality of life"
The IAMO Forum 2013 will provide a platform for academic exchange focusing on the development of rural areas in transition economies of Eastern Europe, the Former Soviet Union, and Asia. We welcome contributions that discuss the consequences of demographic changes in rural areas, the structural changes of rural economies, development of off-farm rural activities or impact assessment of rural policy interventions. Especially, we invite contributions that discuss new concepts to measure well-being of rural households and economic development beyond income based poverty or GDP-like measures. We welcome proposals for organised sessions. The conference contributions may exploit a wide variety of theoretical and methodological approaches from economics, sociology, geography or political sciences. Interdisciplinary contributions are particularly welcome.
