Dear EAAE member,

After the website was hacked we have been working on a temporary website, which is now running. The coming months we will work on redesigning a new website which will meet the requirements of our members. This is one of our biggest priorities in 2015.

The Board had its 2nd meeting in Amsterdam at the end of November. Besides the website, the Board also defined other activities for the coming triennial period.

We wish a merry Christmas and a very successful and inspiring 2015!

Yours sincerely,

The EAAE Secretariat

International Conference of Agricultural Economists

Call For Submissions

Will Martin, IAAE President Elect, invites submissions for the International Conference of Agricultural Economists (ICAE) 2015 to be held in Milan, Italy August 9-14, 2015. These submissions may include Contributed Papers, Organized Symposia, Innovative Proposals, and Pre and Post-Conference Workshops.

The deadline for all submissions is November 5, 2014. Corresponding authors will be informed of the outcome of the review and selection process by March 15, 2015.

Before submitting your contribution, please create a user account using this link  to the conference web site


Donald MacLaren will manage the contributed papers process. The contributed papers will be reviewed on a double-blind basis. The submitting author must indicate whether she/he would prefer to make an Oral or a Visual presentation, or is willing to accept either of these formats.

The Contributed Paper sessions require submission of a full paper. All manuscripts should be anonymous, written in American English, submitted in PDF format and should generally not exceed 30 pages. This limit includes reference lists, figures, and tables. Please use 12-point Times New Roman normal margins, and 1.5 line spacing. Your manuscript should include a title page with a maximum 150 words abstract. To prepare your manuscript please use the MS Word template  and guidelines downloadable from the bottom right corner of the landing page of the conference web site

Please note that presenters of papers must be IAAE members. Each presenter may be a coauthor of a number of Contributed Paper submissions, but may only make one Oral Presentation and/or only one Visual Presentation.

Scholars living and working in developing countries whose papers are accepted for presentation may be eligible for competitive travel grants covering part of the cost of attending the conference.

Please indicate whether you would like your paper(s) to be considered for the Uma Lele prize on Gender, and/or for the TW Schultz / Nils Westermarck prizes for Best Contributed Oral / Visual Papers. Details of these prizes are given in the Appendix.


The Organized Symposia provide more flexibility than is available with Contributed Papers. We envisage that most of these proposals will include presentations that explore different, complementary aspects of a particular topic. Proposals that involve discussants with different points of view will be of particular interest.

Each Symposium organizer should complete the online form and enter the information requested. In addition she/he should prepare and upload a pdf file summarizing the content of the proposal including: session title, session rationale, names and contact information for the organizer(s) and key participants, and a description of the symposium format that includes: the question to be examined; the approaches used to analyze this question; the format to be used; and plans for discussion.


Innovative proposals will also be welcomed. Potential formats for such sessions might include “Hard Talk” interviews modeled on the BBC show in which interviewees are subjected to penetrating questions by an interviewer and/or the audience; Wikithons in which a group writes content for a Wiki on a particular topic; a focused Master Class on a specific topic; Frontier Sessions in which a presenter introduces a relatively new topic, allowing at least 30 minutes for discussion from the audience; or establishment of a Genius Bar modeled on the technical support service at many Apple retail stores.

For Innovative Proposals, the organizer should complete the online form and enter the information requested. Please prepare and upload a pdf file summarizing the content and format of the Innovative Proposal, including the information on key participants (First and Last Name, Organization, and email); the issues/questions to be examined; and the rationale for the approach to be used.


Pre-Conference Workshops have traditionally played a very important role in opening the conference. Because they may be scheduled over a full day, they tend to provide greater opportunities than other session formats either to address an issue in greater depth, or to allow a wide range of perspectives to be considered. The Pre-Conference Workshops for ICAE 2015 will be held on Saturday, 8 August 2015.

There will also be opportunities for half-day Post-Conference Workshops to be held on the afternoon of Friday, August 14. While these have traditionally been less widely-used than the pre-Conference format, they provide an opportunity to discuss issues in more depth than a traditional session during the conference, and allow their organizers to take advantage of the fact that many participants will be in Milan until their flights depart on Saturday, August 15.

Proposals for these Workshops should complete the online form and prepare a pdf file summarizing the content and format of their proposed session; including information on key participants (First and Last Name, Organization, and email); the issues/questions to be examined; and the rationale for the approach to be used.


The International Conference of Agricultural Economists Best Contributed Paper Awards

Each of these prizes provides both a certificate of achievement to be presented at the International Conference of Economists in Milan 2015 and a cash prize of $US 1000.

Nils Westermarck Prize for Best Visual Contributed Paper

This prize is named after Nils Westermarck, who was an outstanding contributor to the IAAE and the agricultural economics profession. This prize is awarded for the best contributed paper presented visually by a young professional in the triennial International Conference of Agricultural Economists. Please note that to be considered for the Nils Westermarck Prize, the lead author should be under 40 years of age at the time of presentation.

T.W. Schultz Prize for Best Oral Contributed Paper

This prize is named after Theodore W. Schultz, who was an outstanding contributor to the IAAE and the agricultural economics profession. This award is given for the best contributed paper presented orally by a young professional in the triennial International Conference of Agricultural Economists. Please note that for the paper to be considered for the TW Schultz Prize, the lead author should be under 40 years of age at the time of presentation.

Uma Lele Prize on Gender

This prize is funded by Uma Lele, a distinguished contributor to IAAE. Contributed papers submitted for the 2015 International Conference of Agricultural Economists that cover the following topics are eligible to compete: (i) promoting a better understanding of the contribution of women to agriculture and rural development as well as the impact of factors such as education, health, infrastructure, information and legal frameworks on changing gender roles in rural areas; (ii) demonstrating how rural women are affected by current or expected technological, economic, social and legal changes; and (iii) evaluating the policy, institutional, and other development interventions that aim to improve the welfare of rural women.

5th EAAE PhD Workshop 2013 in Belgia

Dear researcher

the Belgian Association of Agricultural Economists invites all PhD students in the area of agricultural, natural resource, food and rural economics to submit an extended abstract for the 5th PhD Workshop of the European Association of Agricultural Economists. This workshop is an extraordinary opportunity for young researchers to get feedback on their research from senior researchers and to meet senior economists. An extensive social and networking program will enable PhD students to get to know and mingle with senior and fellow junior researchers in the fields of agricultural, food, natural resource and rural economics. Confirmed keynote speakers are Prof. J. Swinnen, Prof. T. Heckelei, Prof. G. Van Huylenbroeck, Prof. A. Matthews, Prof. B. Henry de Frahan, Prof. M. Carter and Prof. N. Hanley.

The 5th EAAE PhD Workshop will be organized in Leuven, Belgium, on 29-31 May, 2013. In order to present their research, PhD students must submit an extended abstract (1-3 pages) before the submission deadline, which we are now able to extend until January 13, 2013. PhD students can apply to present in a slow format session, in which we will allow extensive time for discussion among the participants; and/or to present their paper in moderated parallel poster sessions (poster sessions with their own dedicated time-slot and session moderators). Hence, the workshop will allow lots of opportunity to discuss and get feedback on the content of your paper. Papers are eligible at any stage of production, hence, papers may report on nearly-finished studies as well as on work in progress. Registration fees for PhD-students are very low (80 euro).

iz ličnog ugla – o imidžologiji i stvarnosti
Budžetska »eutanazija« poljoprivrede i sela

Nagodba Vlade Srbije i predstavnika politički, organizaciono i ekonomski najmoćnija tri udruženja uglavnom vojvođanskih "profi" poljoprivrednika (Klub 100P plus, Asocijacija poljoprivrednika i Udruženje "Vojvodina agrar") ukazuje da ni posle čitave decenije tranzicionih reformi nismo izgradili agrarno-politički sveobuhvatan, razvojno održiv i socijalno pravedan koncept agrarne politike
Naučno-stručne publikacije i analize prepune su argumenata i ocena o zapostavljenosti naše poljoprivrede i sela. Takva zapostavljenost nije posledica samo propusta prethodnih režima, već i (ne)namernih poteza kreatora agrarne politike u tranzicionom periodu, posebno u poslednje tri godine kada je aktuelni režim izvršio budžetsku "eutanaziju" srpske poljoprivrede i sela sa omalovažavajuće malim agrarnim budžetom (oko 2,5 odsto) i izneverio (pred)izborna obećanja iz 2008. godine. Sa tako neprimereno malim sredstvima namenjenim poljoprivrednicima koji čine oko 11 odsto ukupnog stanovništva i poljoprivredi kao "srpskoj nafti" koja sa prehrambenom industrijom stvara oko 20 odsto BDP Srbije i prihoduje oko 25 odsto vrednosti našeg ukupnog izvoza – obezbeđujući i rekordni spoljnotrgovinski suficit od 1,1 milijarde dolara u 2010. godini, čak ni agrarno-politički Ajnštajn u fotelji srpskog ministra poljoprivrede ne bi pronašao zadovoljavajuće rešenje za apetite svih poslenika u "kvadraturi" našeg agrarno-prehrambenog kruga. O infrastrukturnoj i svekolikoj društvenoj zapostavljenosti preko 4500 sela u Srbiji – u koja ne samo lekari, već čak ni poštari više ne zalaze ili prolaze jednom ili najviše dva puta nedeljno – izlišno je bilo šta više govoriti.

"Tajkuni" dobili konkurenciju

U protekloj deceniji tranzicionih promena domaće "tajkune" zdušno smo anatemisali kao "miljenike" i "finansijere" parlamentarnih partija i/ili njihovih lidera. U fokusu (ne)osnovane kritike javnosti na temu "Ko poseduje Srbiju?", međutim, nisu bili i inostrani agrobiznismeni iz ex-YU republika i drugih država – izuzimajući "Salford" kao stalnog dežurnog krivca za sve naše promašaje u (ne)uspešnim privatizacijama i (ne)uspešnom restrukturiranju srpske agroprivrede!? Istovremeno su pojedine vladajuće partije ili možda čak i frakcije u partijama čiji su kadrovi "stolovali" u feudalizovanom Ministarstvu poljoprivrede u periodu od 2004. godine, menjajući ne samo iz godine u godinu već i u toku iste godine "sistem" i način distribucije sredstava agrarnog budžeta, ili sa eventualnim insajderskim informacijama svojim partijskim miljenicima za konkurisanje na budžetske pozicije sa napomenom da "rok prijavljivanja važi do iskorišćenosti raspoloživih sredstava" (možda već unapred raspoređenih), izdašno finansirale formiranje (svojih) agrobiznis lobističkih grupa.

Od protesta ojađenih seljaka do manifestacije moći krupnih farmera

U Srbiji smo tokom prethodne decenije imali brojne ali kratkotrajne, lokalno-regionalne i relativno (ne)efektivne proteste ojađenih poljoprivrednika (Mačva, Subotica, Arilje...), uglavnom zbog niskih otkupnih cena poljoprivrednih proizvoda (mleka, tovne stoke, pšenice, malina...) i njihovog podređenog položaja u neregulisanim odnosima u reprocelini proizvodnje hrane "od njive do trpeze".
Međutim, nedavna šestodnevna traktorska blokada svih regionalnih puteva u Vojvodini (i sa po više traktora istog poljoprivrednika sufinansiranih značajnim bespovratnim sredstvima iz agrarnog budžeta) – čak i ako je od strane režima politički i bezbednosno dozirana "proizvodnja haosa" radi skretanja pažnje javnosti sa drugih akutnih nacionalnih problema – ukazuje na prvu lobistički organizovanu, logistički dobro koordinisanu i od određenih političkih struktura manje-više javno podržavanu manifestaciju snage desetak hiljada krupnih farmera radi očuvanja njihovog privilegovanog položaja u odnosu na druga, daleko brojnija registrovana poljoprivredna gazdinstva (RPG) – među kojima je čak 83,4 odsto izopšteno iz (pre)raspodele sredstava agrarnog budžeta.

O promeni "pravila u toku utakmice"

U 2004. godini kabinet ministarke Ivane Dulić Marković, bez prethodne afirmativne propagande među tradicionalno sumnjičavim poljoprivrednicima, zbog "urgentnosti" našeg prilagođavanja konceptu Zajedničke agrarne politike i najavljeno "ubrzano" pridruživanje Srbije EU (u 2007), distribuirao je u vidu bespovratnih podsticaja i značajnih beneficiranih kredita (55 odsto je nenamenski utrošeno, a rok povraćaja se za većinu i danas reprogramira) realno najveći dosadašnji godišnji agrarni budžet od 24 milijarde (tadašnjih) dinara na samo 38.000 RPG – koji su činili svega 4,9 odsto od ukupno 779.000 individualnih poljoprivrednih gazdinstava (IPG; po Popisu 2002) i – niko od dominantne većine korisnika (uglavnom iz Vojvodine) nije se bunio za promenu "pravila" utakmice koja nije ni održana! Tako je formirano prvo agrarno-partijsko jezgro privilegovanih RPG – krupnijih farmera.
U (pred)izbornoj 2008. godini kabinet Slobodana Milosavljevića produžio je za mesec dana rok obnove i (do)registracije RPG, što je rezultiralo natpolovičnom zastupljenošću 420.000 RPG koja su podeljena na 274.000 "komercijalnih" sa pravom na 100 evra po hektaru oranica i ostatak "nekomercijalnih" kojima je dodeljena agrarno-socijalna pomoć od 40.000 dinara po domaćinstvu.
Iste godine Saša Dragin, drugi ministar iz iste partije, dopunjava "pravila" utakmice i u agrarnom budžetu usvojenom za vreme prethodnog ministra pronalazi "nepostojeću" milijardu dinara za regres od 20.000 dinara po toni za 50.000 tona mineralnog đubriva, inače već regresiranog sa subvencijama po hektaru – ali uz preuzimanje preko Produktne berze u Novom Sadu i to u količinama od 20 do 100 tona po RPG, što će reći – za trovanje zemljišta: tona đubriva po hektaru!
Isti ministar već naredne 2009. godine menja "pravila" agrarne politike i za "komercijalna" RPG – bez zakonskog osnova – proglašava samo "profi" RPG čiji vlasnici imaju regulisano PIO kao zemljoradnici. Tako je iz sistema subvencija po hektaru "u toku utakmice" izbačeno 80,9 odsto od 442.000 RPG, a naredne 2010. čak 83,4 odsto od 451.000 RPG. Tako je pravo na subvencije ostvarilo samo 74.000 RPG čiji su vlasnici penzijski osigurani kao zemljoradnici, koji čine 16,6 odsto ukupnog broja RPG, odnosno svega 9,6 odsto ukupnog broja zemljoradničkih domaćinstava u Srbiji.

Argumenti "za" i "protiv" subvencija za krupnija RPG (30–100 ha)

Novi ministar Dušan Petrović (treći u tri godine iz iste partije) nastavio je, preuzimajući od svog prethodnika već započetu politiku preraspodele agrarnog budžeta u korist unazađene stočarske proizvodnje – koje stvara svega 28 odsto BDP poljoprivrede i manifestuje nestašice mleka i mesa. Zbog ograničenja agrarnog budžeta pokušao je da redukuje subvencije za krupnija RPG, najpre sa "zatezanjem" da im se subvencionira samo 10 ha, zatim je pod pritiskom već započete blokade traktorima popustio na 30 ha, da bi, uz saglasnost "državnog vrha", praktično "kapitulirao u produžetku" – zadržavajući subvencije do 100 ha, ali će deo tih sredstava za površinu od 30 do 100 ha biti isplaćen na teret još nepoznatog agrarnog budžeta u januaru 2012. godine. Time je našoj javnosti konačno obznanjeno ono što agrarni ekonomisti tvrde već skoro čitavu deceniju: da Srbija nema usvojenu agrarnu politiku sa sistemom stabilnih i barem srednjeročno poznatih mera.
Tako će i dalje oko 10.200 RPG sa posedom preko 30 ha svojih i zakupljenih oranica od staračkih i nezemljoradničkih gazdinstava i od rasparčanih kompleksa državnih oranica (12,8 odsto ukupnih korisnika subvencija ili svega 1,3 odsto ukupnog broja zemljoradničkih gazdinstava u Srbiji) dobiti 4,3 milijarde dinara na ime subvencija za deo poseda do 30 ha u toku 2011. godine (za 306.000 ha oranica – 35,8 odsto ukupnih subvencija), a u januaru 2011. godine dodatnih 6,6 milijardi dinara (za 470.000 prijavljenih oranica – 55 odsto od ukupno 12 milijardi dinara koje će se ukupno isplatiti na ime subvencija po hektaru).
Tako će se, zahvaljujući "sistemu" subvencioniranja poseda u srazmeri 1:200 (od 0,5 do 100 ha oranica) odnosno 1:50 u odnosu na prosečnih 2 ha oranica po gazdinstvu u Srbiji, ili 1:5 u odnosu na prosečnih 20-ak hektara oranica po farmi u EU, i dalje zadržati izraziti regionalni disbalans u raspodeli subvencija po hektaru, koji je u 2010. godini dostigao čak 76 odsto u korist RPG u Vojvodini.
Istovremeno, za oko 250 poljoprivrednih preduzeća, preko 1500 zemljoradničkih zadruga, preko 330.000 neregistrovanih zemljoradničkih gazdinstava i čak 375.000 RPG neće biti ni dinara subvencija za njihovih 2.400.000 ha oranica ili 72,7 odsto ukupnih oraničnih površina u Srbiji!
Pritom, čak i agrarno-politički laici znaju da je ovakav "model" srpske agrarne politike nekompatibilan sa konceptom Zajedničke agrarne politike EU, zbog čega će političko-medijsko promovisanje evropskog puta u srpskoj agrarnoj politici morati da doživi korenite promene već sa sticanjem statusa zemlje – kandidata za članstvo u EU. Jer, i Njeno veličanstvo kraljica Velike Britanije i Irske dobija subvencije za kraljevske posede iz agrarnog budžeta EU, a nije osigurana kao poljoprivredni proizvođač!?

O profitabilnosti ratarske proizvodnje i "sistemskoj" (ne)ravnopravnosti proizvođača

Tokom traktorske blokade Vojvodine jedna TV ekipa mi je donela kalkulaciju proizvodnje pšenice i kukuruza od meni nepoznatih autora sa molbom da ja to prokomentarišem – što uljudno nisam prihvatio. Ali sam već sutradan iskoristio boravak po drugom osnovu u Zemljoradničkoj zadruzi "Poljokop" u Laliću (Sombor), čijih 36 radnika obrađuje 450 ha zadružnih i 150 ha zakupljenih državnih oranica i ne dobijaju ni dinara na ime subvencija od države. Oni su na toj površini ostvarili solidne i redovne zarade za toliki broj zaposlenih, čak i dobit od 2,4 miliona dinara, i platili preko 11 miliona ukupnih poreza i doprinosa – uključujući i kalkulisanih 240.000 dinara poreza na ostvarenu dobit. A to je čak 27 puta više od doprinosa koje za zdravstveno i penzijsko-invalidsko osiguranje godišnje uplaćuje šest RPG sa maksimumom od po 100 ha – za koji dobijaju (600 ha x 14.000 dinara) i 8,4 miliona dinara subvencija.

Kopaonik biznis forum 2011. sa osnovnom temom “Održive forme za održiv razvoj” u organizaciji Saveza ekonomista Srbije (SES) i Udruženja korporativnih direktora Srbije (UKDS) održan je u periodu  od  1. do 3. marta. U okviru panel diskusije na temu “Poljoprivreda i prehrambena industrija kao prioritet razvoja” koja je održana 3. marta učestvovao je i predsednik DAES prof. dr Miladin M. Ševarlić, zajedno sa predsednikom Izvršnog odbora Agrobanke mr Dušanom Antonićem; Sašom Vitoševićem, generalnim direktorom firme Global Seed; uz uvodničara i moderatora predsednika MK Group, Miodraga Kostića.

Prof. Ševarlić je ukazao na višegodišnje negativne posledice omalovažavajuće malog agrarnog budžeta, što se odražava na dostupnost subvencija po hektaru samo za oko 74 hiljade registrovanih poljoprivrenih gazdinstava (RPG) odnosno svega 9,6% ukupnog broja individualnih poljoprivrednih gazinstava (IPG) u Srbiji po Popisu iz 2002. godine.  Druga negativna posledica je izraziti makroregionalni disbalans u distribuciji subvencija po hektaru budući da su u 2010. godini 75% dobila RPG sa područja AP Vojvodine a manje od 25% RPG sa područja Centralne Srbije.
Istovremeno, on je posebno ukazao da je i na ovogodišnjem KBF celokupna pažnja posvećivana samo privatnom i javnom sektoru, a da je nedopustivo zapostavljen treći – zadružni sector privrede u Srbiji. Pored osnovnih problema sa kojima se susreće zadružni sektor I zadružni system u našoj zemlji, prof. Ševarlić je istakao da je DAES dobio izradu Strategije razvoja zemljoradničkog zadrugarstva u Republici Srbiji, koja se finansira   sredstvima STAR Project posredstvom Ministarstva poljoprivrede, šumarstva i vodoprivrede.
