Paul Hurley: 'Harder-to-reach' farmers

A College of Social Sciences and International Studies seminar
Date1 December 2021
Time10:30 to 12:30
PlaceOnline via Teams

Paul Hurley is a postdoctoral researcher with the ‘Change in Agriculture’ research group at the University of Reading where he is involved in research projects about so-called ‘harder-to-reach’ farmers, about the Christian ethics of farmed animal welfare, about human-viral interactions and imaginaries, and about the politics of human and nonhuman migration.

Paul and his colleagues will present findings from their work on ‘harder-to-reach’ farmers  which have recently been published in a report titled ‘Engaging ‘harder to reach’ farmers: the roles and needs of skilled intermediaries’. The research focused on engaging ‘harder to reach’ (HTR) farmers in policy design and delivery, and the report outlines the role of skilled intermediaries in supporting farmers throughout the post-Brexit agricultural transition, as well as the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on farmer engagement.
