Designing appropriate regulatory frameworks and institutions

The former centrally planned economies of Europe and Asia provide rich material for a critical examination of simplified expectations of policies and institutional frameworks. Designing appropriate agricultural policy and institutional frameworks is important for competitive food economies and the vitalisation of agrarian rural areas facing diverse cultural, historical and social contexts.

Therefore, research in this thematic complex focuses on finding out which policies and institutions contribute more effectively and efficiently to a sustainable improvement of agricultural economic strength and rural living conditions. Research in this area includes monitoring and evaluating policies for the development of agri-food sectors and rural areas, as well as examining the drivers and decision-making processes of reforms and policies.
