Bringing Marginalised Livelihoods into Focus, 2008-2011

Over the past four years, the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies has clarified and consolidated its vision of what we seek to do and have elaborated an agenda for research, policymaking, teaching and training that emphasises the centrality of the dynamics of chronic poverty and structural inequality in South Africa.

Its particular emphasis is on understanding how the workings of agro-food systems can either perpetuate structural poverty and marginalisation - or alleviate it. Within this broad field of investigation, our work focuses on the dynamics of marginalised livelihoods in agro-food systems; particularly livelihoods which are vulnerable, structurally excluded or adversely incorporated: those of farm workers, small and subsistence farmers, artisanal fishers and fishing communities, and the informally self-employed, in urban and in rural contexts.
