FEDAGRIPOL – Political economy of agricultural policies in federal systems
Policies and institutions
01.04.2016 - 31.03.2019
The general objective of FEDAGRIPOL is the comparative analysis of the formation and development of agricultural policies at sub-federal level from a political economy perspective. More specifically, the project aims at explaining the behaviour of regulators (i.e. ministries, governments) at the level of EU member states and Russian provinces with respect to the choice of agricultural policy instruments and their implementation. The project fills important gaps in understanding the choices of EU member states and Russian oblasts in implementing the agricultural policy framework decided upon at the higher level. Thus, results of FEDAGRIPOL will better inform analyses of the incidence of agricultural policies for agricultural development and structural change in the EU and the Russian Federation.
