About this book

The 50th anniversary of IRRI, the first international agricultural research institute, calls for a book to contextualize changing international rice research and global development politics at the academic level. This book sketches the changes in rice research and development policies from a historical perspective. National changes, long term changes and international cooperation are connected to the changing international research and development policies reflected at IRRI. The book also discusses how IRRI can be positioned in current debates of food security, global stability, agricultural and rural development and human and social concerns.
