Whose Bioeconomy? Tracing Visions of Socio-ecological Transformation and their Ethical Deliberation in Tanzania. Bioeconomy as societal change, Module 2(2).

We suppose that smallholder peasants in the Global South endorse visions of land-use which are controversial to those dominant in the Global North.

With this research project, we aim at:

IDENTIFICATION of conceptions of land-use endorsed by smallholder farmers and pastoralists

UNDERSTANDING of why some conceptions are politically dominant in Tanzania

RECONSTRUCTION of the reasons by which they are justified to be desirable

ANALYSIS of normative conflicts between Tanzanian land-use visions and commitments in bioeconomy strategies from the Global North
