Family farms provide most of the world's agricultural production; they supply markets with raw and processed products and have an important role in the natural resource management. In spite of several modernisation theories announcement, peasant agriculture (partially integrated to non perfect markets) have not disappeared in the south countries. In the North family farm units coexist with family agricultural small firms/enterprises. Family farms are innovative and can be found all over the world because of their capacity to adapt to different situations, showing resistance and resilience potential which can be associated to a social capacity of mutation and adaptation. By the way, both in the north and in the south countries, family agriculture is faced with the challenges of globalisation in a liberalised environment marked by the end of State support and the opening of markets to external competition. Smallholders, peasants and family farmers are being confronted with rapidly changing environment as they are increasingly faced to global economy processes and to their local effects : decentralisation, privatisation, economical integration, etc.
The workshop will examine the transformations and opportunities created by these change and try to analyse how they can be characterised. Is it in terms of resistance, of survival or in terms of mutation of traditional peasant societies? On an other the hand is there any perspective for a complete transformation to a market integrated firm-like model ?
Several questions can guide the main lines of this workshop :
* Which kind of social or socio-economical processes can explain the adaptation capacity of peasant or family farm structures : forms of land/resources access and management, the organisation of family labour
and the management of family assets ? existence of reciprocity and redistribution relations, based on human values ?
* How, in certain conditions, family farmers and stakeholders are enabling to diversify their activities or to suit new sustainable and multifunctional types of family agriculture ? How agricultural innovation
processes are triggered or inhibited by the challenges of globalisation ? Interest of social capital analysis ?
* Which socio-political capacities can explain the alliance and links with other stakeholders, in order to enabling rural and peasants to empower their organisations, to renew co-ordination mechanisms and to
find new ways of regulating agricultural sectors and establishing public policy ?
* On an other way, how can we observe the permanence of family farms and the end of peasant societies, for example comparing African and Latin American situations ?

* Rural governance: local partnerships, decentralization and the state
* New social movements
* Resistance, transformation and challenges
* Gender issues in rural societies
* New developments in food supply chains
* Globalization and the family farm: struggles, strategies and new
* Rural development policy and practice
* Resources, territory and environment
* Alternative agricultures
The XI World Congress will be held in Trondheim (pronounced Tron-heim):
