The Future Direction of US and EU Agricultural Policy

US and European agricultural policies have evolved over similar paths, shaped by the globalization of agricultural markets, consumer interests, environmental pressures, fiscal constraints, and World Trade Organization disciplines. As the US debates the 2018 Farm Bill and the EU debates a future Common Agricultural Policy for 2020, what can we expect for the future of agricultural policy?

 

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Delegation of the European Union to the United States are pleased to co-host this seminar, featuring distinguished experts who will look at how these debates will shape US and EU agricultural policies.
