Intercultural dialogues on African philosophies and agricultural development  

Surprisingly African philosophy is a largely unknown field among agricultural scientists and practitioners, whereas it is highly relevant when thinking about and working on sustainable agricultural development. Likewise, agriculture has gained little interest in the field of academic African philosophies so far. In the current research I therefore aim to link agricultural development to African philosophies.

I will  follow the method of prof. Heinz Kimmerle on intercultural philosophy by engaging in intercultural dialogues with African colleagues. Through dialogues on African philosophies and agricultural development we can learn from each other and enrich both fields.

Stay tuned for new updates, or contact me for the latest developments.

For published research on livestock production, socio-cultural sustainability, agricultural development, innovation platforms, value chains, smallholder production, and gender please take a look at main publications.
